  • If the wind differs from the runway heading by 15 degrees, the crosswind component is roughly one-quarter or 25% of the wind velocity. Divide the reported wind speed by four to estimate the crosswind component.
  • If the difference between the wind and runway heading is 30 degrees, the crosswind is half of the reported wind speed.
  • If the wind makes a 45-degree angle with the runway, the crosswind component is three-quarters or 75% of the overall wind speed.
  • When the windsock is pointing 60 degrees or more from the runway centerline, assume the crosswind component is the same as the reported wind speed.
