Pilots of all stripes, along with general aviation enthusiasts and others, will descend on Oshkosh, Wisc., next week for the EAA AirVenture 2013, otherwise known in flying circles simply as “Oshkosh.” Get your tickets at airventure.org.

The simulator, leased by Alpha Flight Simulation to Air Associates, is the first of its kind in the Midwest, and is only the 14th produced by Redbird.

Scott Thompson, Chief Flight Instructor at Air Associates, says the simulator fits perfectly with the “Learn, Sim, Fly” training philosophy used at the school.
