These state-of-theart flight simulators will be on location at the Kerrville, Texas Manufacturing and Service Center Headquarters, Chino; California, the global corporate headquarters and in the newest location, Bejing, China, an office set to open later this summer.

The customized and calibrated flight simulators will mimic every aspect of a Mooney airplane, including their in-flight experience.

"It's as authentic as you can get. These simulators step up our sales game like never before because they will show any prospective pilot just how responsive a Mooney aircraft is in flight." - noted Tom Bowen, Chief Operating Officer for Mooney.

The Redbird FMX simulators will have Mooney branded graphics. Among the many features, the simulators will include a fully enclosed cockpit, quick-change configurations, customized wrap-around visuals, scenario-based training compatibility and an electric motion platform.

While these simulators will be used for sales, they will also serve as transition training and pilot proficiency training.

At this year's EAA AirVenture Show, Mooney will be demonstrating desktop versions of the simulators at its booth. in social media:
