New York College Will Work With Redbird Skyport In san Marcos,
A Memorandum of Understanding was signed Tuesday by
representatives from Vaughn College and Redbird Flight Simulations
to develop a highly innovative flight training program using
Redbird’s Skyport flight training facility and simulation
development laboratory opening this November at the San Marcos,
Texas Municipal Airport. The FAA Part 141 program is designed to
improve student pilot proficiency and safety while increasing
student retention and graduation rates in an accelerated
simulator-centric program that accurately predicts
time-to-completion and expense.

“We searched for the most innovative and effective flight
training program and found it with Redbird Flight Simulations,"
said Vaughn’s president, Dr. John Fitzpatrick. "We are
confident that, using this innovative approach, we can graduate
Vaughn students that are highly skilled, competent, safe pilots at
a cost and within timelines that represent a real value to our
students and their families.”
“Our simulator-centric flight training curriculum is a
revolution in the way ab-initio flight training is conducted and a
safe and controlled environment for students to reach their goals,"
added Jerry Gregoire, founder and Chairman of Redbird Flight
Simulations. "The Vaughn College and Redbird Skyport is a great
partnership for exploring and refining the next generation of
flight training curriculums and systems. We are thrilled to have
this opportunity to work with Vaughn College.”
Vaughn College and the Redbird Skyport have scheduled the first
class of student pilots for the upcoming spring semester.
