CTI Professional Flight Training’s new training device has eight high-resolution monitors, which provide a clear display of the flight instruments and more than 200 degrees of wrap-around visuals from the pilot’s seat. “The Redbird FMX serves up a level of realism that is simply unavailable in other training devices on the market, all while allowing students to train more efficiently and more cost-effectively than they could in any other device,” says Alan Mullen, CTI Professional Flight Training’s President and CEO.
The Redbird FMX accurately simulates the experience of flying two of the flight school’s newest aircraft, the Diamond DA-20 C1 and DA-42 NG. “CTI Professional Flight Training has some of the most advanced avionics available in a training aircraft. The FMX allows our students to familiarize themselves with the new technology while they’re on the ground, instead of burying their heads in the cockpit while in the air,” says David Kaiser, CTI PFT’s Vice President of Flight Training Operations.
CTI Professional Flight Training has been training professional pilots at its Fort Lauderdale location for over 25 years, and recently expanded its operation to a satellite base at Millington Regional Jetport near Memphis, Tennessee. This expansion includes a complete renovation of an existing hangar at the Jetport, an order for twenty new fully-equipped training aircraft, and plans for a full campus-style training experience, including on-site dorms, dining, and recreation facilities. CTI Professional Flight Training’s unique training format can take a student from zero hours experience to a licensed commercial pilot in approximately eight months.
