Redbird full-motion simulator has proved to be a valuable flight training aid for our flight school.

The Redbird FMX Now with Cygnus!
The goal of realistic simulation is to fool the mind into forgetting what it knows to be true in favor of what the senses are telling it. In the case of flight simulation, this means convincing the mind that it’s not sitting in a metal box, planted firmly on the ground, but that it’s cruising at 7000 feet. Getting the mind to admit that it’s wrong is not a simple proposition, and can’t be done with a single sensory input alone. The eyes and ears must be working in concert for the mind to truly believe. The Redbird FMX motion platform truly takes it to a new level. It manipulates the sense of balance, further selling the mind on the fact that it’s airborne, and not on terra firma as it so fervently believed before it was introduced to the FMX simulator.
The Redbird FMX is a high-quality, feature-rich motion AATD, with real-world flight training operations in mind. With standard features that are anything but standard, such as wrap-around visuals, a fully enclosed cockpit, reconfigurable construction, and of course a motion platform, the FMX serves up a level of realism that is simply unavailable in other training devices on the market.
A great visual system is essential for a training device to be truly effective and versatile. And if you want to train complex maneuvers such as turns around a point, circling approaches or even basic pattern work, one forward looking screen is not going to cut it. That's why the Redbird FMX is equipped with six monitors dedicated only to external views. This high-quality, wrap-around visual system helps to sell the sensation of flight and enhances training at all levels by allowing you to train procedures and maneuvers that are not possible with other flight training devices.
