At its Migration Flight Training Conference last October, the Redbird folks that their school has graduated 20 Private Pilots, as well as completed 18 instrument ratings, one multi-engine rating and one instrument instructor certificate.
It took an average of 38 flight hours to complete the private pilot rating, which is less than two-thirds the national average. The same Redbird event provided an outstanding opportunity for some of aviation's visionaries to opine about the future of GA -- including Bendix/King Boss Kevin Gould.
Gould has big plans for B/K... "In early 2012, Bendix/King took a major step forward by setting up independent business operations functioning within Honeywell. This new business model gives us the independence and flexibility we need to respond to the unique needs of light aircraft owners and pilots, like yourself. With our new operations, based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, we are confident we are on the right path to better serve your aviation needs."
Kevin adds that, "As a pilot, I am passionate about flying. Just like you! At Bendix/King, we are a team of aviation enthusiasts. We are dedicated to discovering and introducing products that capitalize on making it easier for pilots to understand and execute the actions they want to take in the air. To achieve this, we are building on the legacy of Bendix/King while evaluating the technologies available today in an effort to better anticipate the changes in evolving interests and needs of the general aviation pilot. You have asked, and we have listened. We will deliver innovative, reliable, cost-effect and intuitive products."
Join ANN and Kevin for some interesting thoughts about the role that B/K plans to play in the future of our industry...
