Following an initial safety briefing, goals assessment, and tour of the facilities, students saddle up in a choice of virtual steeds, including a single-propeller Cessna, a multiengine Twin Aztec, and a lawn chair held aloft by a deluxe balloon bouquet. Sky jockeys depart from a selected airport to flit about true-to-life simulations of real-world locales as the Redbird FMX simulator rocks like a real plane, giving pupils a taste for flight as they acquire experience to apply toward a full private pilot’s license course. Throughout the session, a qualified instructor plays puppet master in the copilot’s seat, pulling the strings that control craft functionality, weather conditions, and fashion-industry favorability of aviator sunglasses.
