As part of the Commercial Pilot License course, students will be training in the state-of-the-art, Redbird LD Flight Simulator. The simulator is a cost-effective way for students to log up to 50 hours out of the 250 hours that are required for the Commercial Pilot License. Training with the simulators also provides other benefits such as flying in different flight scenarios that may not be possible to perform in the sky and also practicing maneuvers on the ground to increase proficiency before flying the airplane.
