With wraparound visuals and a fully enclosed cockpit, the Redbird FMX 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.

The instructor Kevin was great! Had lots of laughs and good times. We performed some exciting turns and saw great views. Will be back for another flight soon.

Loved the experience! Took my fiance for his birthday and he had such a great time. He had never flown before and was nervous at first but our instructor was the best. He was a great teacher, very clear in instruction and patient. Upgraded once I got a hold of the company to have more time in air which was totally worth it! Down side is they do not answer their phone calls or messages. I had to have groupon contact them to finally book an appointment. Groupon saved the day, was able to book for my fiance birthday.
