Simulator Flights

Our Redbird Simulators help train our pilots. Sim-training is crucial as it allows our students to make mistakes in a simulated environment before taking to the skies. Learning proper technique before doing practical flying keeps our students safe and fully prepared.

Come experience our pilot training! Simulator sessions will be ongoing throughout the day. Show up early to get your name on the sign up sheet. First-come first-serve!

Dunk Tank

Specially for the flight training students in the North Texas region. Dunk your DPE in our DPE Dunk Tank! $5 for 3 throws, all proceeds go to local high school aviation programs.

Presentation and Q&A with Airlines

This past year, due to COVID-19, the airline industry took a tremendous hit. This may have seemed like a major setback, but, as is the nature of the travel industry, it has proven to be only a temporary one that has now begun to pave the way for unprecedented growth. Most major airlines have announced that as of June 2021, they will be opening 100% of their fleets.  This means that hundreds of aviation jobs will be opening.

We will have several current airline pilots join us to answer any and all of your questions about aviation, the airlines, and the future of the industry.
