The Jay Velocity Edition is a highly robust simulator designed for demanding environments like middle and high schools, museums, and public access kiosks. The clean-sheet design prioritizes one thing for the classroom: Get the student learning with a minimum of fuss. There are no peripherals to configure, no systems to install. Take it out of the box, plug it in, and turn it on. Now say, “preflight complete.”
The Jay Velocity shares design components with full motion simulators built by Redbird Flight Simulations, which withstand thousands of hours of abuse in schools around the world. The software on the Jay Velocity is the same code powering those FAA-certified machines. It’s one tough bird.

Scenario-based training? It’s built in.
Students immediately begin to learn and apply their knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
The Jay Velocity is more than a simulator – it’s a flight experience device supporting students’ learning of STEM academics through flight training and fun! In addition to the flight mode where you select the aircraft and conditions, the Jay Velocity has a scenario mode where you can load a preset scenario and fly it. A scenario could range from a simple aviation challenge to a complex flight with multiple potential outcomes all while the students apply STEM principles.
Redbird creates many of these scenarios in partnership with training outlets and magazines. The scenario exchange is open to any company wishing to create scenarios for the Jay Velocity. A one-button update on the JAY loads the latest free scenarios.
Built by Redbird
The Jay Velocity is built in the same Austin, Texas factory as our full-motion Advance Aviation Training Devices and we use the same thoughtful engineering to create a robust product far about the industry standard. The chassis is metal, not plastic. Control smoothness is paramount. The parts should last indefinitely.
Professional Level Software for Powerful Training
The software powering the Jay Velocity is Lockheed Prepar3D (pronounced “prepared”). Prepar3D is an evolution of Microsoft’s FSX, enhanced and expanded for professional-level simulation. This means most of the plug-ins, aircraft, and communities designed for FSX will work flawlessly on the Jay Velocity.
Experiential Learning with Diverse Aircraft
The Jay Velocity comes preloaded with a diverse selection of aircraft for learning and fun. Plus, just about any FSX aircraft or add-on from these developers will work:

RD1 Rudder Pedals - $549
Rudder pedals are the single most important option to add realism to your Jay or TD, but consumer level, low cost pedals often give you the sense of playing a computer game rather than providing real flight training. The Redbird RD1 Rudder Pedals are designed to mimic exactly what you’d expect while flying.
The advanced spring system means you can apply pressure to the rudder verses only forcing rudder travel, just like in the real aircraft. For precise ground handling, the RD1’s have a full range of travel and aircraft-style, differential toe brakes. The all-metal RD1 Pedals use the same technology found in Redbird’s professional-grade simulators, so they are not only realistic, they’re virtually indestructible.
Redbird Cygnus - $599
Cygnus allows you to use any aviation or navigation apps running on your Apple iOS device while connected to any one of a wide range of flight simulation software products. When using Cygnus during a simulation session your iOS device and the aviation app it is running will believe that it is located wherever the aircraft in the active simulation is located. Cygnus is the perfect tool for training pilots in the use of iPad© aviation apps in a safe and controlled environment.
Cygnus Pro Wireless comes with a fully-functioning Bad Elf GPS Pro external Bluetooth wireless GPS receiver, and can be used to feed simulation data to up to 6 Apple iOS devices.
Cygnus talks directly to the location services on your iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone, or iPod touch allowing you to display your simulated location on any location based App, including:
- ForeFlight Mobile
- Garmin Pilot
- WingX Pro7
- Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck
- Reader Plates
Cygnus will work with most Windows based flight simulation software, including:
- All Redbird Simulators
- Lockheed Martin Prepar3D
- Microsoft ESP
- Microsoft Flight Simulator X
- Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000-2004
- X-Plane 9 and 10
Redbird Corvus - $599
Corvus connects your Redbird simulator to ForeFlight (more EFB connections are in the works) by providing data akin to an ADS-B receiver. In addition to representing own-ship position of simulated aircraft, Corvus also broadcasts attitude and heading reference systems (AHRS) information as well as Traffic Information Services-Broadcast (TIS-B) data. Select Flight Information Services-Broadcast (FIS-B) functionality, such as weather and airspace information, are currently in development and will be available in future updates.
Aviation Headset Connect - $99
The Redbird Aviation Headset Connect box converts the aircraft-style headset plugs into standard computer audio jacks, allowing you to use your aviation headset with your simulation device. Both audio and microphone are converted connect to allow for two-way communication. Aviation Headset Connect supports both mono and stereo headsets.
