VERO BEACH, Florida – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Skyborne Academy Vero Beach, a modern aviation training academy offering a new approach to pilot training, is proud to announce the addition of two Redbird MCX training simulators to its program. Representing the PA28 and PA44 aircraft, Skyborne will integrate these simulators into its FAA and UKCAA training programs next month, pending certification.
The Redbird MCX provides an enhanced training experience for flight students and professional crews. It features a dual loading yoke and dual rudder system for simultaneous pilot and co-pilot control, wraparound visuals and quick-change cockpit configurations to provide the best quality training for future pilots.
“At Skyborne, we aspire to be the most trusted aviation training academy through an unprecedented training approach that addresses the gaps in the airline industry,” said Lee Woodward, CEO of Skyborne. “This includes investing in state-of-the-art equipment, like the Redbird MCX training simulators, to ensure our cadets receive top-notch training that will continuously propel them to the next step in their careers.
There is a critical demand for professional pilots as the aviation industry faces a pilot shortage that is expected to increase in the years to come. The Redbird MCX was created to teach students how to fly safely and efficiently, alone or with someone else in the cockpit, by putting students in real life crew resource management situations. This type of training is essential for pilots to be equipped with the right skills to fill the current talent gaps facing the industry.
