Redbird flight simulators are migrating south to Brazil after Instituto Arruda Botelho purchased multiple cross-wing, full-motion, and table-mounted simulators during Sun ‘n Fun.
According to a press release, the company bought simulators for the Cessna Caravan, King Air 90C, and Piper Matrix in addition to the other devices. All of the simulators are equipped with Parrot to help students learn proper radio communication skills.
“This is a very important addition to our facility in Itirapina,” said Fernando de Arruda Botelho, head of Instituto Arruda Botelho, in a press release. “We really like the idea that the Redbird simulators are geared beyond merely meeting the minimum FTD requirements, and help teach how to actually fly the airplane, under VFR as well as IFR conditions.
Redbird said it welcomes the opportunity to expand its reach to Brazil to help train students.
Pilot Training and Certification,
As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
The Aircraft Spotlight feature looks at an airplane type and evaluates it across six areas of particular interest to flying clubs and their members: Operating Cost, Maintenance, Insurability, Training, Cross-Country, and Fun Factor.
