This easy-to-use calculator is perfect for determining crosswind and headwind components just before takeoff or landing. To operate, put the runway heading in the box at the top of the computer, find the wind direction and follow the corresponding line towards the center of the computer to mark the wind speed. Then read down for the crosswind component and across for the headwind component. No pencil needed. Measuring just 4.5” in diameter, the Crosswind Calculator is perfect for the cockpit. The back of the calculator also lists the flight plan sequence, VFR cruising altitudes and has space to copy down appropriate V-speeds.

Pros:
It works and its quick, down and dirty.

Bought it as a quick visual aide and backup for the electronic computer. Heck its so fast and I can use one hand, that I don't use the flight computer when I need a crosswind/headwind calc anymore.

Not Recommended

Pros:
Standard information
Cons:
Just cardboard. Not even lamanated. I was disappointed for $12.95. Add to that an additional $7.50 in shipping and I think I'll go elsewhere.

Pros:
Much better than the crosswind calculator on my kneeboard or in POH. Simple to use.
Cons:
A bit flimsy. Would like to see instructions on calculator rather than on small slip of paper that I have now lost.

Excelent alternative to what is in the POH.
