Benefits of the FMX Simualtor

Unfortunately flying an airplane is not without risk so it is essential that pilots of all levels are ready and prepared for any situation that may take place and it is a lot safer to rehearse emergency situation in a Redbird FMX Flight Simulator than an actual aircraft. When a pilot is exposed to a wide variety of emergency situations in a FMX flight simulator the pilot will know what to do and hopefully will learn how to be calm under pressure. The use of flight simulators has saved countless lives over the years as the pilots are properly prepared to handle any situation.
