Redbird MCX

The Redbird MCX is a superior-quality, full motion, feature-rich Advanced Aviation Training Device priced with real-world flight training organisations in mind. The MCX is a dual yoke, dual rudder simulator that is geared towards Crew Resource Management (CRM) and two pilot cockpit training. With standard features that are anything but standard such as wrap-around visuals, a fully enclosed cockpit, quick-change configurations, scenario-based training compatibility and of course an electric motion platform, the MCX serves up a level of realism that is simply unavailable in other training devices on the market.

Cockpit configurations

The MCX was designed to be reconfigurable, allowing the flight school to use one simulator to represent all of the airplanes in their training fleet. It’s versatile enough to be used for single or multi-engine training and can represent glass panel aircraft as well as traditional six-pack configurations. Each simulator comes with one configuration of your choice from our library of available aircraft. Additional configurations may be purchased.
