Redbird Flight Brings the Power of Aviation into the Classroom

Redbird Flight Simulations has released an updated and specialized version of their desktop flight simulator, the Jay Velocity Edition, to support schools that are investing in STEM education. Redbird created this highly robust simulator for demanding environments like middle and high schools, museums, and public access kiosks. The clean-sheet design prioritizes one thing for the classroom: Get the student learning with a minimum of fuss. There are no peripherals to configure and no systems to install. The Jay Velocity shares design components with full motion simulators built by Redbird Flight Simulations, which withstand thousands of hours of abuse in schools around the world. Students can take flight in a range of different aircraft and in a variety of environments.

This week, Redbird Flight will exhibit at the National Science Teachers Association Conference in Los Angeles, Calif. They invite attendees to visit Booth 1363 to take a flight in the Jay Velocity and discuss how to bring this powerful tool into the classroom. Redbird is a part of the conference’s Air & Space Education Alley. The Alley consists of organizations that are members of the National Coalition of Aviation and Space Education which serves as a resource for schools interested in exploring new learning opportunities.

“Schools are working to personalize students’ learning and rethink how classroom time is used. When students have the right technology, learning is enhanced and becomes more engaging,” noted Redbird’s Director of Business Development, Joey Colleran. “We are proud to focus on building tools that promote and foster STEM education and create an interest in aviation and flight training.”
