The easiest-to-use flight simulator you can buy

Finally, a flight simulator that doesn’t require an advanced engineering degree to set up! The Redbird Jay features realistic controls and powerful training scenarios, as you would expect, but it also emphasizes ease of use and fast setup. Simply take the Jay out of its box, plug it in and turn it on - no configuration, no settings and no mess of wires. You’ll be up and running in less than five minutes.

Once you are flying, choose from dozens of pre-loaded training scenarios: low instrument approaches, cross country trips or adventures in exotic airplanes. Or create your own flight from one of the dozens of airplanes included. Choose the time of day, location and weather conditions for added realism.

The Jay’s solid metal housing indicates this simulator is made to last, and the sturdy yoke feels like it’s right out of a Cessna or Piper. Panel includes magneto switch, yoke with electric trim, throttle, mixture and flap handle. Includes built-in computer and screen, so there’s nothing extra to buy.

The software powering the Jay is Lockheed Prepar3D (pronounced “prepared”). Prepar3D is an evolution of Microsoft’s popular Flight Simulator X, enhanced and expanded for professional-level simulation, including Redbird’s full-motion simulators.

This means most of the plug-ins, aircraft and communities designed for FSX will work flawlessly on the Jay.


Includes:
  • AMD 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
  • 8GB RAM
  • 160GB, 7200-RPM Hard Drive
  • ATI Radeon HD 4250 Video
  • 27-inch LCD (1920 x 1080 pixels)
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • Lockheed Prepar3D Visual Simulation Platform
  • 90 day warranty

The Jay does not qualify as an FAA approved BATD. Does not include rudder pedals.

What else comes with the Redbird TD with foot pedals?? What flight software does system come with? How does the new X Plane 11 work with your simulator... I am a New student pilot, age 68, NOT very computer SAVVY,,, How hard is it to get it running? Fully understanding HOW it works... And being able to do landing patterns etc etc... How does it compare with other simulators out there? Like Microsoft ?
Greg D on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Jay comes with everything you need except the rudder pedals (which can be added on). There is a computer built in and the fight simulator software is included (a customized version of Lockheed Prepar3d). You can plug it in and turn it on - very little setup. You can do landing patterns, instrument approaches and all kinds of other scenarios.
