Summary

Summary

The instructor was embarking on an introductory flight with a prospective student. The wind on the duty runway was outside the aircraft limits so the instructor elected to use a different runway where the crosswind was within the aircraft limits. As the tail was raised off the ground the student applied incorrect aileron input for the crosswind and the right wing lifted, causing the aircraft to ground loop off the runway. Before the instructor could regain control, the aircraft hit trees at the edge of the airport boundary.
