Training From First Solo to Multi-Crew

With its dual control system, wrap-around visuals, quick-change cockpit configurations, and extensive government approvals, the Redbird MCX is a truly powerful tool for aviation training, from pre-solo student pilots to advanced, line-oriented, multi-crew operations.

Redbird MCX

Training For Modern Crew Environments

The flight training industry is facing a huge demand for professional pilots to operate the airliners and business jets during the next wave of aviation growth. Most of these pilots will go to work in a crew environment from day one. It’s time we started teaching our students how to safely and effectively perform when they’ve got someone else in the cockpit with them. This is where the MCX shines. It’s full dual control system allows you to put your students in real-world Crew Resource Management (CRM) situations well before they have 200+ passengers in the back.

Dual Controls for Better Training

The MCX is a dual yoke, dual rudder version of the FMX designed for CRM and two-pilot cockpit training that is suitable for new pilots and experienced flight crews alike. The yoke and rudder pedals are linked so students can feel the control pressures when their instructor demonstrates a maneuver and so they can safely learn the importance of the statement, “I have the controls."

MCX Dual Controls

Motion For Everyone

The Redbird MCX comes equipped with our innovative 3-axis electric motion platform. This one-of-a-kind system provides effective motion feedback for yaw, pitch, and roll. The system is clean and quiet enough to operate in a small classroom but robust enough to stand up to years of hard use in a large professional pilot academy.

Immersive Visuals

Most simulators feature a single screen, but why limit your students’ training experience — and your profits — if you don’t have to? The Redbird MCX is a superior training platform thanks in large part to its expansive 200° visuals and worldwide terrain database. Instructors can still “put ‘em in the soup” if needed, but students also have the unique opportunity to experience the view from the cockpit without ever leaving ground.

Loggable Time, Valuable Training

We advocate the power of simulation-centric training and believe the value of the MCX far exceeds providing loggable hours. But we recognize, at the end of the day, we all want credit for our work. That’s why we made sure the MCX can be certified in just about any country. The FAA has approved it as an Advanced Aviation Training device, it meets the requirements for EASA FNPT II qualification, and many other authorities recognize the value of training in the MCX.
