Each device is loaded with the same professionally developed scenarios seen at the Oshkosh venue. As an EAA member you can get an hour in the sim with a qualified instructor for a flat rate of $50.
Train Remotely from your Redbird TD
Connect with experienced CFI's from SAFE and NAFI directly from your Redbird. These seasoned flight instructors are qualified to teach with the same simulation missions used at the Pilot Proficiency Center at AirVenture and have access to state of the art technology to provide remote training. Schedule a date and time that works for you.
TD / TD2
Access to Expertise
Your instructor will connect direct to your sim with the new Redbird Connect platform that transforms the acclaimed Navigator instructor station into a remote training platform. You'll communicate with video and audio through ZOOM.
If you have a home-based Redbird ATD, you can fly select simulation missions with a remote instructor. All you need is to make sure your Redbird simulation device is up to date and that you've got a good camera connected to a Zoom meeting platform.
