Skyborne Academy Vero Beach has added two Redbird MCX simulators to its training facilities.
The simulators represent Piper PA-28 (single-engine piston) and PA-44 (twin) aircraft. Skyborne will integrate the simulators into its FAA and UK CAA training programmes next month, pending certification.
The Redbird MCX provides an enhanced training experience for both flight students and professional crew. It includes a dual, control-loading yoke system and dual rudder pedals for simultaneous pilot and copilot control, wrap-around visuals, and quick-change cockpit configurations.
Skyborne CEO Lee Woodward said, “At Skyborne, we aspire to be the most trusted airline training academy through an unparalleled approach to training that solves for gaps in the airline industry. This includes investing in market-leading equipment, like the Redbird MCX Training Simulators, to ensure our cadets experience best-in-class training that will propel them into the next stage of their careers without interruption.
“The Redbird MCX was created to teach students to safely and effectively fly both alone and with someone else in the cockpit by putting students in real-world Crew Resource Management situations. This type of training is essential to pilots to be equipped with the right skillset to fill in the current talent gaps faced by the industry.”
