Yes inertia plays a big roll in flying but wind direction has nothing to do with it and you will get the same results no matter what your direction in relation to the wind. Inertia plays a role when you are talking about turbulence, ie. wind shear, gusting, up/down drafts, rotors etc... or high load maneuvers. Again these situations will occur at any point of the flight not just during a specific turn in relation to the wind.
