After a 15-minute briefing, instructors strap virtual pilots into the enclosed cockpit of a Redbird FMX flight simulator. A 200-degree wraparound visual display lights up at the start of the 45-minute lesson to immerse riders in an authentic flight experience with full mechanical motion and a program similar to that used to train airline pilots. Pilots can practice basic flight maneuvers and aerobatics or hone quick-thinking skills in emergency scenarios. Loaded with a range of U.S. airport and terrain databases, the simulator also lets them soar past the Statue of Liberty, dive over the cliffs of the Grand Canyon, and make water landings in the President’s swimming pool. Instructors can pause the program at any point to give tips and solve problems, and all participants can log simulator time toward future training hours.<p>

Freeway Airport

Light Cessna planes soar over the rolling green fields surrounding Freeway Airport before making their landing at the FAA-approved repair-and-maintenance facility. Staffed by FAA technicians and certified flight instructors, the aviation center services professional pilots with 24-hour fuel access, charts and plates, and other pilot supplies, and also educates budding aviators in the art of flight. For almost 50 years, the training center has supported pilots in their quests for sport, recreational, private, and instrument licenses as well as advanced commercial flight certificates. Staff instruct pupils with toolssuch as a Redbird FMX with a 200-degree wraparound visual cockpit displayand up-to-10-week ground classes teach flight principles and the best jokes to tell during passenger-safety briefings. Alternatively, during hands-on discovery flights, they let students take the helm of light aircraft to experience basic flight under their watchful instruction.
