A flight simulator allows students to practice all maneuvers before they move on to an airplane. This reduces stress, improves retention and increases pilot satisfaction with training, all of which leads to higher flight completion rates. Whether you need to train for pilot certification, recurrent training or proficiency training, the RedBird Motion Simulator provides a level of realism that is simply not available in other devices.

Realistic Environment

Whether you’re a student pilot, private pilot, instrument or commercial pilot, flight simulator training is the best way to learn, sharpen, and practice maneuvers in a safe and controlled environment. It allows you to rehearse emergency procedures in the same way that they would be done in an actual aircraft, practicing muscle-memory of procedures and sharpening decision making skills. A realistic environment is the key to a successful flight simulator training experience for both student and instructor. The RedBird Motion Simulator offers a number of features that help create an environment that is as close to the real thing as possible. The 3-axis motion platform raises and lowers (pitch up and pitch down) through a total of 50 degrees, rotates left and right through 60 degrees of yaw, and rotates about the Longitudinal and Vertical axis to simulate roll movement. It also provides six wrap-around screens for a very realistic visual simulation. This gives the student a very realistic sensation of the movements of the aircraft and helps them transition to the real aircraft more quickly.

Easy To Operate

The RedBird simulator comes with many features to make your training easier and more convenient. For example, it has a pilot key, which can be used to launch and save flights, load and play back scenarios, or track your training time for billing purposes. Another great feature is the ability to pause your training and practice muscle-memory procedures. It also has a free flight mode, allowing you to select your own aircraft and conditions. RedBird is a leader in delivering high-quality, full-motion simulation products for flight schools and individual pilots. The company is well known for its realistic environments and extensive government approvals.

Safety First

The RedBird Simulator offers a lot of benefits to pilots, but one of the most important is safety. The simulator allows students to practice landings, IFR procedures, aircraft malfunctions, and emergency procedures, all in a safe and convenient environment for less money than going to an actual flight. When training on the simulator, you don’t have to worry about the safety of your aircraft. You can take as many tries as you want to master a skill and be confident in the outcome. This is far better than trying it out on a real airplane and risking injury or equipment damage.


Simulators are a great way to practice maneuvers and procedures. This repetition helps to build muscle memory and transfer the skill to real-world flying. For pilots whose schedule doesn’t allow them to fly during busy times, simulators offer the perfect alternative to maintaining proficiency. These devices can be used to practice hold and approach maneuvers, tracking VOR’s, and other flight techniques in your home without the need for travel or time away from work. The RedBird FMX is an FAA Approved Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD). It allows you to log up to 2 1/2 hours toward your Private Pilot’s License and 20 hours towards your Instrument Rating, plus keep up your instrument currency all for less than half the cost of an airplane rental! This technology is truly changing the way people learn to fly!
