Austin, Texas-based Redbird Flight Simulations is expanding its footprint with a new 50,000-sq-ft facility in Kyle, which is an Austin suburb south of the city-center. The flight simulator manufacturer is investing $2.2 million into the new facility and plans to bring 71 full-time jobs to the region.
“The Texas Innovation Corridor was the clear choice for our next expansion,” said Redbird CEO Todd Willinger. “We sought a location with a robust workforce, pro-business attitude, and a strong track record of supporting innovation and found that in the city of Kyle and Hays County.”
Construction has already started on Redbird’s new building, with completion set for mid-2022. According to the company, the new facility will include 30,000 sq ft of manufacturing space, 3,000 sq ft of production-associated space, and 17,000 sq ft of office space.
Redbird is currently planning to fill 59 initial positions, ranging from senior management to production team members.
