Redbird Flight Simulations, Inc. is pleased to announce that its simulators have been selected by Zulu Flight Training, Inc. (Zulu), a subsidiary of Continental Motors, Inc. (CMI), an innovative flight training concept whose first training center recently opened in Mobile, Alabama. Zulu is a new concept in pilot training that is designed around a structured curriculum using advanced full motion flight simulators and advanced technology training aircraft to deliver a consistent, cost effective and safe path to obtaining basic and advanced pilot licenses. A key component of Zulu Flight Training brings the ground school and simulation training to the student by placing the primary training center at easily accessible locations within the population center. Aircraft operations are supported at one or more nearby airport facilities to maximize convenience for the pilot trainee.
Zulu has partnered with Redbird Flight Simulations to provide the latest in advanced, full motion, flight simulators. These simulators are utilized by the trained Zulu staff to demonstrate and practice all key flight skills prior to entering the actual aircraft environment. This affords the student the chance to learn complex maneuvers and theories in a controlled, low stress environment and to practice those skills as many times as they need prior to entering the actual aircraft. This results in lower cost to the student, higher student proficiency and a high level of confidence once they leave the ground in the airplane.
“Zulu’s approach to primary flight training is another important step toward simulator-centric primary flight training. Zulu’s notion of bringing flight training to where the students are is, frankly, brilliant and we are proud to be a part.”, said Jerry Gregoire, Chairman of Redbird Flight Simulations.
