VFR and IFR Training Scenarios for January 2023

Inside the January 2023 Redbird Pro Scenarios

Editor's Note: On the first Thursday of every month, Redbird Pro releases new flight simulator scenarios designed to challenge pilots of all skill levels with relevant and realistic training that addresses several areas of proficiency. 

In this month's scenarios, you will be reminded of the duplicity of nature: beautiful to look at from above but brimming with unexpected curveballs that challenge your skills at the controls. Whether you're flying through the mountains on a sunny VFR day or high up in the clouds in solid IMC, you'd better be prepared for anything.

Both new scenarios are available today in the app's growing library of training tasks. Read on to learn more about the latest additions to Redbird Pro.
