Redbird Skyport in San Marcos — Something We All Agree is Exciting!

November 14, 2011 by Craig Fuller

Just a few weeks ago, Jim Campbell from Aero-News Network and I sat down for a good long conversation that focused mostly on what we agreed about.  Leading that list is the exciting new development at the San Marcos Airport outside of Austin, Texas.  There, Redbird Flight Simulations has created from scratch The Redbird Skyport and an innovative approach to all things general aviation, especially flight training.

Unfortunately, a long term commitment kept me away from the facility I’d visited while underconstruction. However, our AOPA team was on hand and Editor-in-Chief Tom Haines addressed the gathering.

Today, Jim Campbell’s coverage tells the story of the Redbird Skyport Grand Opening on Aero-TV.  They have provided exceptional coverage and Jim invited me to share it with our readers….I know you will enjoy watching and learning what our friends at Redbird have created!  CLICK HERE TO WATCH ANN-TV’s coverage of the Grand Opening.

Here, too,  is our AOPA Online story from the event by Ian Twombly….CLICK HERE.

This is real innovation in general aviation that all of us should celebrate…and, on that, we really can agree!
