Currently, Birmingham Flight Center is the only flight school in Alabama with a full motion flight simulator. At $121 per hour (with instructor), this is a fantastic way to save money, and maximize training.


Within the Redbird FMX simulator, our skilled instructors can simulate an astonishing variety of real world experiences. Events ranging from critical system failures, engine out procedures, and even wind shear and wake turbulence. When was the last time you completed a partial panel NDB approach?
