The Redbird MX2 is a high-quality, feature-rich, full motion AATD flight simulator, with standard features that are anything but standard, such as wrap-around visuals, a fully enclosed cockpit, reconfigurable construction, and of course a motion platform, The MX2 serves up a level of realism that is simply unavailable in other training devices.
One of the hardest things for new pilots to learn is proper radio communications.  That's why the MX2 includes an intercom system that’s compatible with standard pilot headsets.  This allows the instructor to sit back and play ATC so that the student can build radio skills before it really matters. The headsets also help to isolate the student and instructor from distractions that can derail a training session.
The Redbird MX2 can be used instead of 2.5 hours of actual in flight training time for the Private Pilot Certificate and for 20 hours of Instrument Rating training. It’s also a great way to accelerate in air training by working out difficult maneuvers, like cross wind landings and emergencies on the ground.
