A new floatplane training device addresses a void in the unique flight training market.
At EAA AirVenture 2018, Redbird Flight Simulations, Wipaire and Tropic Ocean Airways announced a partnership intended to modernize floatplane training. As the design and usage of floatplanes have advanced, the technology utilized for pilot training has remained stagnant. To address the unique training requirements for floatplane pilots, Redbird has customized its immersive, full-motion CRV training device—which represents a Cessna 208 Grand Caravan—to include an amphibious float kit designed and manufactured by Wipaire.
All flight simulators, including those from other companies, can be traded in for credit toward the purchase of a new Redbird.
Redbird Flight Simulations today announced its new Trade In, Trade Up program to give owners of outdated flight simulators an upgrade path to a state-of-the-art Redbird aviation training device. Simulation has become an important part of modern flight training, but thousands of simulators are relegated to limited use due to a reliance on 30-year-old technologies and outdated design. This new program from Redbird allows operators of these devices to get value from their initial investment, while upgrading the training experience they can offer to their customers.
