Flight Simulator

Realistic visual effects, combined with the noise and movement of an airplane, the FMX serves up a level of realism unlike any other training device. We can even simulate environmental conditions and safety situations.

Cockpit Configurations

          Just like the airline simulators, the Redbird is properly used to build skills proficiency. The FMX was designed to be reconfigurable, allowing us to use one simulator to represent all of the airplanes in our training fleet. It’s versatile enough to be used for single or multi-engine training and can represent glass panel aircraft as well as traditional 6-pack configurations.
