Glacier Landing Redbird Jay Scenario
Glacier Landing Redbird Jay Scenario

A new simulation scenario is available for users of the Jay flight simulator from Redbird Flight Simulations. This month Redbird presents a new scenario where aviators using the simulator will have the opportunity to fly a Maule M-7-260C ski plane from Talkeetna, Alaska, up the Ruth Glacier to the Don Sheldon Amphitheater, which is nestled within the rustic beauty of the Denali National Park & Preserve. Once there, sim fliers will land and pick up two passengers before returning to Talkeetna through the arresting scenic views provided by this one-of-a-kind landscape.

The Redbird Jay was first launched at Sun ’n Fun last year. Marketed in partnership with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, the Jay was crafted as an easy-to-use simulator that would specifically allow pilots to fly scenarios that pushed their limits. The Jay comes with a screen display, yoke, trim, throttle and mixture control, among other features. Rudder pedals are optional.

This latest ski plane scenario is part of an ongoing series that will allow Jay fliers to try their hands at the obstacles and circumstances that fill the pages of Flying every month.
