Global Flight Research
The sight of an airplane soaring through the air in the modern era is so unsurprising that most of us never stop to think about how tons of metal are even able to take flight. Not so for the technicians and trainers at Global Flight Research. Their bread and butter is getting folks safely airborne. They provide maintenance and repair for privately owned aircraft, as well as training for aspiring pilots. To that end, they employ flight simulators, especially when teaching advanced strategies to experienced pilots. In addition to the Red Bull planes that have a timed simulator course, Global Flight Research uses the Beechcraft G36/1000, Cessna 182RG, Piper Seneca II, Beechcraft G58/1000, and Extra 300 in their simulator. In that environment, students can safely take on dangerous situations, such as dealing with Upset or Unusual Attitude scenarios and the terrifying discovery that your co-pilot doesn't like Cheers.
