Redbird Announces Joint Venture With China

Redbird To Ship And Support Flight Training Devices

John and Martha King moderated a flurry of announcements to a packed room today at Redbird Flight Simulation's press briefing. King Schools is acting as the exclusive Marketing and Design partner for Redbird simulators. King Schools, Continental Engines and Bad Elf are teaming up to supply Simulator Training devices to China. Redbird company officials have developed their Zulu model of training which is customized to bring flight training to the customer so they can complete a good portion of their training before they even set foot in an airplane, at a great economic savings to the pilot. Zulu will be implemented first in Alabama and then in New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Beijing and possibly Shanghai.

Redbird offers a full line of flight training devices from an RD table mounted trainer for less than $7000 to a FMX full-motion flight simulator. The FMX is the flagship of the Redbird line offering a fully enclosed cockpit with +200 degree visuals and yaw, pitch and roll motion. The FMX starts at $59,800.

Rhett Ross, of Continental Motors, announced the Memorandum of Understanding with the Chinese to sell, repair and train pilots in Redbird simulators. Though several governmental entities have to agree on the implementation of the training, Ross anticipates China to be an extremely important emerging market.

Bad Elf in cooperation with Redbird and King Schools, has developed software called Cygnus, to be used with the iPad. Cygnus tricks the tablet into thinking the flight tracking software is in the same physical location as the simulator. So lets say you want to shoot approaches at JFK but are training in Redbird's San Marcos facility. Cygnus allows you to use the full capacity of your inflight software so you can both learn the tablet and the airplane at the same time.
