Redbird Simulator

EAA Chapter 162 has arranged for special rates on two Redbird flight simulators, one at Nashville Flight Training at BNA and one at Hollingshead Aviation (MQY).

Nashville Flight Training (BNA)
The simulator is the same as the one at MQY except it is not full motion. It is certified for flight training. EAA Chapter 162 members receive a $20/hr discount off the regular $65/hr plus instructor rate.

Nashville Flight Training is located at 801 Hangar Lane, Hangar #7, Nashville, TN 37217. Contact Chris Erlanson 615-366-9191 (office) or to schedule a session. Users are required to have a one-hour checkout with a Nashville Flight Training instructor for their first session. Instructor is not required on future sessions.

Hollingshead Aviation (MQY)
This is a spohisticated, full motion simulator certified for flight training. It is an excellent resource for instrument proficiency work. With an instructor pilots alone can log time toward instrument currency requirements and instrument training.

The EAA 162 member rate for the simulator is $55/hr by check ($60/hr by credit card). The standard rate for this simulator is $75/hr plus instructor. Steve Kravitz and Peter Cassidy have been trained in the simulator operation.

Available aircraft configurations are Cessna 172 with G1000 panel, Beech Baron with G1000 panel, Beech Duchess with older "steam" gauges. All configurations have Garmin 530/430 radios for navigation. The Duchess works well for single engine simulation.

This simulator can be flown VFR as well as IMC with any conditions desired.
