DSC_0970The Red Bird FMX full motion flight simulator is one of the best Advanced Aviation Training Devices.  With full wrap-around graphics, and realistic motion – just like you are in the airplane – this flight simulator provides an excellent experience for those learning to fly, or for recurrent training as well.   In addition, you can “fly” our Red Bird in or out of nearly any airport in the world.

Whether you are an initial student with little or no experience, or an advanced pilot preparing for an interview with one of the major carriers, we can offer you the convenience and safety of training in a Sim that has everyone talking.

We offer advanced flight training with our Redbird FMX full motion simulator in a variety of aircraft. Pilots can learn in a new G1000 Glass Cockpit C172, a C172 with the traditional Six-Pack configuration and the  G430/530, or in a Beechcraft Duchess – BE-76 with G430/530, for advanced multi-engine training.

Using a simulator for a portion of your training as a student pilot, for adding instrument privileges to your certificate, or for refining instrument approaches and practicing emergency procedures will not only make you a more proficient pilot but a much safer pilot. Simulator training also allows you to train more often while saving money in the process. This is definitely a winning combination for pilots at any level.
