The best simulator to sharpen your skills and stay current anytime
Ergonomic Design Enhances Learning
Traditional "desktop" flight training devices sit on top of a table or desk, causing the pilot to reach up for the yoke and to look unrealistically high for the gauges and outside visuals. The Redbird TD is different. Designed with the ergonomics of flight in mind, the TD´s unique mounting system allows it to be mounted under the table, placing the yoke, switches, gauges and visuals in the correct and most realistic position for the pilot.
Sharpen Your Skills ... Anytime!
Whether you are a flight school interested in enhancing your training with simulation, or an individual pilot looking to hone your skills from the comfort of your home or office, the Redbird TD is the perfection solution.
- Start your flight on the ground at any airport or in the air
- Fly day or night in VFR or IFR conditions
- Practice aircraft failures and emergency procedures
- Shoot instrument approaches to minimums at any airport in the world
- Practice cross-country flights to unfamiliar airports before you get in the airplane
Maintain Your Instrument Currency
Schedule regular sessions with your instructor and maintain your currency at far less cost than flying an airplane. Not only will you save time and money, but with a good currency plan, you will stay sharp by regularly practicing the real-world failures that can occur. While regularly practicing instrument flying in the airplane is critical to safety, you can stay sharp by incorporating the TD into your overall currency plan.
Gain FAA-Approved Experience
Add optional rudder pedals and the Redbird TD is approved as a Basic Aviation Training Device (BATD) by the FAA. It is then authorized per 61.4(c) for use in satisfying the Tasks/Maneuvers and Procedures under parts 61 and 141. See download links above for latest FAA authorization letters.
Enhance your training options by adding a simulator to your "flight line"—at a very low cost of acquisition and ownership. For only $6,995 ($7,995 for the TD2 model) you can substantially increase the quality of the training you provide your customers by incorporating a simulator into your syllabus. There is good reason why most insurance companies insist on sim training to fly jets. You can practice failures and situations that simply would not be safe in the air. Don´t just talk to your students about dealing with difficult situations, put them in front of the TD so they can practice the skills that can be a true life-saver!
TD2 Model Available for Complex Airplanes!
The Redbird TD now also comes in a TD2 model that adds propeller and gear controls to the hardware and manifold pressure gauge and gear position indicators to the display. If you are flying a complex airplane, you will want this model to ensure you complete your GUMPS check at the right times. The TD2 model also allows the selection of a "simple" airplane, which disregards the prop and gear controls. This gives you the option to start with the simple model and grow into the complex, or to select the right model for a customer in your flight school.
Includes everything you need to begin flying
- One cockpit configuration (analog or G1000)
- 27" monitor
- Computer completely configured and ready to run
- Instrument panel
