To commemorate the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor, Redbird has built a custom P-40 motion simulator.
Redbird Flight has built a custom, full-motion simulator of a Curtiss P-40 Warhawk to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The simulator, based on Redbird’s MX2 platform, will be displayed during AirVenture at the Pacific Aviation Museum exhibit (Main Aircraft Display Space 445). Attendees can take part in history as they fly over Pearl Harbor. The project was a result of a partnership between Redbird Flight, A2A Simulations, FLYING, and the Pacific Aviation Museum.
Pilots participating in the EAA Pilot Proficiency Center will receive an interactive debriefing experience through Redbird Sidekick.
Redbird Flight is proud to support the EAA Pilot Proficiency Center by providing 14 training devices, Sidekick data collection system, and its new debriefing application on Redbird Landing. The Pilot Proficiency Center serves as a gathering point for pilots of all levels to enhance skills, learn from expert instructors, and become safer pilots through effective simulation training. Those who visit the Pilot Proficiency Center will be able to choose from 32 different training scenarios. At AirVenture, all simulator flights will be recorded with Redbird’s Sidekick technology and uploaded to the Redbird Landing. Data collected by Sidekick will allow pilots to perform a thorough debrief of the scenarios at the Redbird exhibit or at home by visiting landing.redbirdflight.com/debrief. Attendees participating in the Pilot Proficiency Center will receive an ID badge that will identify and associate them with all of their training flights. At the Redbird exhibit space (located next to the Proficiency Center), they can retrieve their flight information with the QR code and review everything about their training session.

Three student pilots go from zero time to ready to solo in one week.
Three aviation rookies, one week, three solo flights—that’s the idea behind “One Week Ready to Solo”, a joint project designed to demonstrate that learning to fly is more achievable than most people think.
The project, which is a collaborative effort of Redbird Flight Simulations, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), Jeppesen, Sporty’s, Garmin, LightSpeed, and Sun ‘n Fun, will take three individuals with no aviation experience, put them through six days of intensive training, and have them ready to conduct a supervised solo flight at the end of one week.
