The Redbird FMX is a superior-quality, Full Motion Flight Simulator, feature-rich Advanced Aviation Training Device priced with real-world flight training organizations in mind. With standard features that are anything but standard such as wrap-around visuals, a fully enclosed cockpit, quick-change configurations, scenario-based training compatibility and of course an electric motion platform, our Full Motion Flight Simulator serves up a level of realism that is simply unavailable in other training devices on the market.
We know from firsthand experience at our flight training laboratory, Skyport, that motion does matter, and for some less than obvious reasons. Pilots that learn primary flight skills in a device that provides accurate motion feedback transition to the real aircraft in less time because they know what it “feels like” to fly. They are less anxious in the cockpit, have better touch on the controls, and know why you need right rudder in the climb. Interestingly, having a full motion simulator might be even more important for the flight school. At the end of the day, a flight school is a business that lives or dies by how many new customers it can acquire and how many current customers it can keep. The FMX has proven to be a huge marketing and customer retention advantage for the hundreds of schools that operate one. Motion: Good for Training, Good for Business.
In the past, simulators have been used almost exclusively for instrument instruction and a single screen was all you needed to show the runway when the student broke out at minimums. But why limit your customers’ training and your profit if you don’t have to? The Redbird FMX is a great primary training platform, thanks in large part to its expansive visual displays. You can still put’em in the soup if needed, but accurately simulating VFR flights opens up a huge range of uses for the FMX. Let a student practice turns-around-a-point or show them the highway they’ll pass over on their long cross-country. With a world-wide terrain database to support the 200°visuals, the FMX lets your customers experience the view from the cockpit before they ever leave the ground.
We are firm believers in simulation-centric training and we know the value of the FMX far outpaces the loggable hours, at the end of the day, we all want credit for our work. That’s why we made sure the FMX can be certified in just about any country. The FAA has approved it as an Advanced Aviation Training Device, it meets the requirements for EASA FNTP qualification, and over 20 other authorities recognize the value of training in the FMX.
