Redbird FMX 1000
wrap-around visual, multi-million dollar realism.


The FMX’s electric motion platform and wrap-around visual offer multi-million dollar realism. With a training environment this realistic, it’s no surprise over 20 aviation authorities have approved the FMX, including the FAA and EASA.

REDBIRD FMX1000

Academy of Aviation is the only flight school in the Northeast United States that has a full motion G1000, Enterga and tradaditional gauge instrument flight simulator. Immersing the pilot in the simulation is essential to selling sensation of flight. Sitting in a corner at a desktop trainer might help to train certain skills, but it will never be confused for real flight. You have to isolate the pilot and instructor from the outside world so that they can be totally focused on the simulation. That's why the Redbird FMX comes equipped with a light-weight aluminum cockpit enclosure. Not only does this help to immerse the pilot in the simulation, but it also isolates the student and instructor from outside distractions that can easily derail a training session.

A great visual system is essential for a training device to be truly effective and versatile. And if you want to train complex maneuvers such as turns around a point, circling approaches or even basic pattern work, one forward looking screen is not going to cut it. That's why we equipped the Redbird FMX with six monitors dedicated only to external views. This high-quality, wrap-around visual system helps to sell the sensation of flight and enhances training at all levels by allowing you to train procedures and maneuvers that are not possible with other flight training devices.
