During the flight simulator experience, take in the wraparound visuals and fully enclosed cockpit of the Redbird FMX that realistically mimics scenario-based trainings for a single- or multiengine aircraft.

U.S. Aviators

The highly trained instructors at U.S. Aviators imbue students with the aviation know-how necessary to earn ratings from private and commercial pilot licenses to instrument ratings and instructor certification. To prepare pupils for their skyward excursions, the teaching team simulates flights with a touch-screen multi-aircraft flight simulator, which replicates real-life scenario-based training with wrap-around visuals and single- or multi-engine configurations. From there, students hone their aerial skills with U.S. Aviators' fleet of Cessnas, Pipers, and an American Champion Decathlon, named for the event it won by flying over its opponents. Along with hands-on experience, U.S. Aviators supplies budding pilots with necessary gear such as terminal charts, mechanic tools, and sunglasses at its fully stocked shop.
