Redbird Flight Simulations is expanding its Austin, Texas-based operation, not only doubling its manufacturing facility, but also adding staff.
“As flight schools look to improve training, an increasing number of them are finding that our simulators are an obvious benefit to their overall curriculum,” said Todd Willinger, Redbird Flight Simulations CEO. “Our expansion is not only crucial in keeping up with demand in a timely manner, but equally necessary in providing exceptional customer service and support.”
Redbird has seen strong demand and customer growth for its simulators both in national and international markets, he said, noting that since the 2008 FAA approval of the Redbird AATDs, the company has exceeded its sales projections by more than 50%.
An additional 6,000 square feet of manufacturing and office space has been added, along with several new hires, including Terry Kelley, a former executive at Pepsi and Dell, as director of customer support and services. Also joining the team is Corrine Rotan as director of marketing. She has more than 11 years experience in the high tech industry, specializing in sales, branding, media relations and integrated marketing communications.
