No, you don't use rudder or aileron trim to land with a crosswind. The procedure is covered in the Learning Center within Flight Simulator. Smile

Very carefully. Laughing

You might want to read the "Exciting Flight Simulator Flights" thread to learn how NOT to land a small plane in a crosswind! Wink

it's pretty fun. I'll usually just have the plane localise until I hit the threshold

I always do wing-low approach when theres cross wind. Just bank into the wind, then apply opposite rudder, so the plane just goes crabbing rather than turning. But whats hard is the wind doesnt blow at you with a constant speed, you have to constantly adjust to the wind gusts. sometimes if you are not compensating correctly you are simply blown off or overshoot the course.....
