Inside the Redbird FMX full-motion flight simulator, instructors set scenarios so pupils get the chance to navigate through turbulence, fix critical system failures, and maneuver past the clouds that have Care Bears living on them. During discovery flights, an instructor takes students up into the air and hands over the controls for part of the trip so they can experience what it feels like to fly.<p>

We had a splendid adventure at BFC. Our flight instructor, Woody, was very professional. My husband is now considering completing the training, one of his life long dreams. Thanks BFC for giving us a great flight.
