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
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.
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.
Maintain Your Instrument Currency
Effective July 27, 2018
The new FAA rule on IFR recurrency requirements will allow you to maintain your currency without the need for an instructor when using this Redbird BATD to perform your required recurrency training—and at a 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.
