AUSTIN, TX, (July 21, 2010) - Redbird Flight Simulations, Inc. the fastest growing flight simulator provider, announced today that they have received FAA certification on the new TD2. The Redbird TD2, like the TD, is a table-mounted Basic Aviation Training Device (BATD) which allows pilots to hone their skills and log instrument experience. The TD2 comes in either a glass panel or steam gauge configuration and allows the pilot to fly with or without high-performance engine, retractable gear, and/or a constant speed propeller, allowing for complex and high-performance training. King Schools began taking orders for the new TD2 earlier this month and have already built a strong backlog. Flight schools, colleges, universities and individual pilots are finding that the TD2 starting at just $7,995 is a convenient and cost-effective solution for improving flight skills – anytime, anywhere.
“In most cases, TD2 orders ship the day the order is received and is usually delivered to the customer within 3-5 business days. Once received, it’s easy to set-up and easy to use.” said Todd Willinger, CEO of Redbird Flight Simulations, Inc. “We’re finding that it’s not only flight schools who are ordering the TD2, but pilot home users as well, looking to learn basic flying fundamentals, transition into glass cockpit flying and to stay instrument current.”
With the Redbird TD2, users can start flight on the ground at any airport, or in the air, fly day or night in VFR and IFR conditions, and practice aircraft failures and emergency procedures. The Redbird TD2 is ideal for shooting instrument approaches to minimums and to practice cross-country flights to unfamiliar airports. Additionally, users may log up to 10 hours toward an instrument rating and up 2.5 hours toward a private pilot license.
The Redbird TD2 creates new levels of realism with its unique ergonomic mounting system and is equipped with computer, monitor, instrument panels, keyboard, speakers, cable and software. Available in either glass or steam gauge cockpit configuration, the Redbird TD and TD2 can be purchased directly through King Schools, Inc at www.kingschools.com, or 1-800-854-1001.
