Our aircraft are outfitted with the amazing Garmin G3X Touch avionics. This system is intuitive to use and will better prepare you for the professional aviation environment where most aircraft now incorporate glass cockpit systems.
Our aircraft are equipped with the Rotax 912 series engines. These modern, efficient engines are reliable, inexpensive to maintain, and simple to operate. With a fuel burn of only 5 gallons per hour, we can offer competitive pricing on aircraft rental.
All our aircraft are equipped with a Garmin autopilot that couples with the G3X for vertical guidance, GPS steering, and altitude hold. This equipment and feature will prepare you for the professional aviation environment where such systems are commonplace.
This plane is unmatched in fit and finish. Bristells are exciting, fun, and affordable planes to own and fly. Beautifully crafted and designed to accommodate two full size adults, with a generous cockpit accessible luggage space allowing up to 35 lbs and a 3 lb. hat shelf. A whopping 38 pounds just aft of the pilot for easy access in flight to your gear.
The Redbird FMX comes equipped with the innovative, 3-axis, electric motion platform. This one-of-a-kind system provides effective motion feedback for yaw, pitch, and roll.
"You can still put ’em in the soup if needed, but accurately simulating VFR flights opens up a huge range of uses for the FMX."
Students can practice turns-around-a-point or review their VFR route for a long cross-country.
With a world-wide terrain database to support the 200° visuals, the FMX allows students and pilots a view from the cockpit before they ever leave the ground.

The goal of realistic simulation is to fool the mind into forgetting what it knows to be true in favor of what the senses are telling it. In the case of flight simulation, this means convincing the mind that it’s not sitting in a metal box, planted firmly on the ground, but that it’s cruising at 7000 feet. Getting the mind to admit that it’s wrong is not a simple proposition, and can’t be done with a single sensory input alone. The eyes and ears must be working in concert for the mind to truly believe. The Redbird FMX motion platform truly takes it to a new level. It manipulates the sense of balance, further selling the mind on the fact that it’s airborne, and not on terra firma as it so fervently believed before it was introduced to the FMX simulator.
