Advanced Aviation Training Device
The Redbird SD is a top choice for flight schools needing an affordable, fully enclosed Advanced Aviation Training Device. It includes all of the features found on our groundbreaking FMX, with the exception of the motion platform making the SD an excellent alternative when space is at a premium.
The FAA has approved it as an Advanced Aviation Training Device.
With its wrap-around visual system, the Redbird SD will totally immerse your customers in their flight training. It’s versatile enough for single or multi-engine training and can represent glass panel or the traditional 6-pack avionics configurations. In short, the SD provides a government-approved, fully enclosed, visually stunning flight simulator for less than the price of a new SUV!
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 SD 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 SD. 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 SD lets your customers experience the view from the cockpit before they ever leave the ground.
One Simulator, Dozens of Airplanes
Gone are the days when every aircraft in the fleet had the same avionics package. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could offer a simulator for every type and panel in your fleet without needing to spend a few hundred thousand dollars? We thought so too, that’s why we designed our innovative, quick-change aircraft configuration system. In less than 10 minutes, your instructors can switch the SD from a 172 with analog gauges to a SR22 Perspective to a Baron 58 with a 430/530, or any of the 30+ aircraft configurations we offer. From the latest in glass panel technology to the old 6-pack and lots of GPS/Radio stacks in between, the SD can meet just about any need.
