Reinforcing its strong commitment to training new pilots, Piper Aircraft will take a Piper Archer TX trainer to the upcoming annual Migration Flight Training Conference Oct. 27-29 at Redbird’s San Marcos Skyport training laboratory.
The Piper Archer on display is equipped with the Garmin G1000 avionics suite and the Appareo Vision 1000 flight data management system for increased situational awareness. Additionally, Redbird will exhibit its G1000 equipped Piper Seminole twin-engine training aircraft.
“Redbird Flight Simulations is continually advancing state of the art pilot training and, as a leading manufacturer of simple and complex training platforms, Piper is delighted to be right there with them in this pursuit during the annual Migration Flight Training Conference,” said Piper President and CEO Simon Caldecott.
“We expect hundreds of participants at Migration this year,” said Jerry Gregoire, Chairman of the Board of Redbird Flight Simulations. “We are especially pleased to have an aircraft manufacturer with Piper’s strong commitment as a partner in our efforts.”
The fourth annual Migration conference will offer interactive sessions and more topic areas than before. The most important topics will be student-led experiential learning in simulators, a “connected” airplane that plays a direct role in student training, the economics of all-diesel training fleets and motion simulation’s role in reducing primary helicopter training times.
