Flight Simulation

  • Flight Simulation

    Transportation Module:

    The Flight Simulation module offers the students a realistic, professional pilot training experience. Students learn about aviation technology and the knowledge and skills required for a safe flight. They apply what they learn to virtual flying experiences, which may spark an interest in aviation-related continuing education and careers.

    Using simulation software, students test their virtual skills in taxiing, straight and level flight, and solo flying. In addition, Flight Simulation students construct gliders and apply the principles of aerodynamics to understand how airplanes are able to fly. They also study the basic characteristics of jet engines and use the jet flight simulator to learn how to handle stall, uncoordinated flight, and slip.
