AUSTIN, TX (July 13, 2011)- Redbird Flight Simulations, Inc., a leader in the aviation training industry announced today that it has moved its manufacturing and office facilities to a custom built headquarters in Austin, TX. “This building was designed with our specialized needs in mind and it will give us the space and tools required to meet the growing demand for our products” said Todd Willinger, Redbird Flight Simulations CEO. “We anticipate seeing great benefits in manufacturing, development and customer support.”
The new facilities, at nearly 30,000 square feet, are more than double the size of Redbird’s previous location. The increased space will allow Redbird to meet the industry’s burgeoning requirements for innovative flight training products. Redbird has delivered more than 300 training devices in the past 2 years and continues to expand its offerings. “On the manufacturing side of the house, the added space will provide us with a much needed increase in capacity and gives us the room for the specialized tooling that many of our new products require” said Darren Bien, VP Operations. Todd Willinger added that “to meet the demand for our products and continue to innovate at the level the industry has come to expect, we will be hiring additional staff and this facility will give us the space to do that.”
The new headquarters is located less than 10 miles from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, which has both commercial airline service and general aviation facilities. “We host customers at our location almost daily and making it easy for them to get to our office was an important factor in choosing this location” said Todd Willinger. The facility has a dedicated show room to provide customers the opportunity for a hands-on demonstration of the products offered by Redbird.
Product demonstrations and factory tours are available by appointment.
The new facility is located at:
2301 E St Elmo Rd, Suite 100
