Full Motion REdbird Simulator
Our Full Motion FMX Redbird simulator, located in its own dedicated environmentally controlled room, supports three aircraft configurations; a Piper PA-28 Warrior, a Cirrus SR20, and a twin PA-34 Piper Seneca.
For flights students looking to acquire an IFR rating, or rusty IFR pilots needing an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC), the Redbird simulator can significantly reduce flight training costs. Up to 20 hours of the required 40 hours of IFR flight training necessary to obtain an IFR rating can be done in an Advanced Aircraft Training Device (AATD), like the Redbird FMX simulator.
The RedBird simulator can also be a cost effective tool for private and commercial flight training students to learn new flight maneuvers and practicing emergency procedures in a controlled environment.
