RedBird Connect is a New Virtual Flight Training Platform

Redbird Flight Simulations is providing free access to a new product that enables flight instructors to conduct remote flight simulator sessions with students. Redbird is offering the new product for free as flight schools and instructors adjust their operations during the global coronavirus pandemic.

Redbird Connect provides a platform for flight instructors and their students from all over the world to safely resume flight lessons through flight simulation and video conferencing technology. This platform enables remote access to a web-based version of Redbird’s flight simulator operating system, Redbird Navigator, which gives flight instructors full functionality of the system’s instructor tools.

To use Redbird Connect in their flight training, students will be able to download and install the product on any Redbird flight simulator that has the Navigator operating system installed. For more information visit RedBird Flight Simulations.

Additionally, as part of EAA’s Spirit of Aviation Week, which takes place July 21-25, 2020, Redbird Connect will power the Virtual Pilot Proficiency Center. Since the event has been cancelled, this will become and all-online version of the week-long program offered at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh that will pair pilots with Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) to practice a series of scenario-based training exercises for visual flight rules (VFR) and instrument flight rules (IFR).
