Aircraft and Training Devices

Single-Engine Aircraft

Multi-Engine Aircraft

Piper PA44-180 Seminole

For our Multi-Engine program the school operates a PA44-180 Seminole, also purchased new in 2005.Piper Seminole Transition to this aircraft from the Arrow and Warriors is almost seamless. The flight characteristics of the Seminole are very similar to the Arrow. It has state of the art avionics, including autopilot, flight director and GPS navigation capability. With this aircraft you will practice simulated engine failures, as well as single engine approaches and landings.

 

 

Beechcraft BE58 Baron

Also used extensively in our Multi-Engine program is a late-90’s model BE58 Baron Beechcraft Baronpurchased in 2005. This aircraft is also equipped with modern avionics, including autopilot, flight director, GPS navigation and a multi-function display. In the Baron the student is exposed to flying a heavier twin aircraft as well as advanced multi-engine systems including de-ice and anti-ice systems and weather downlink capability. The Baron is also available for faculty and staff transport (FAST) flights on University related business.

 

 

Beechcraft BE90 King Air

Our flagship iBeechcraft King Airs a late-90’s model King Air C90B purchased in 2005. The King Air is used in the school’s turbine transition course. Like our other aircraft the King Air is equipped with the latest in avionics, including electronic flight displays (EFIS), autopilot, flight director, multi-function display and GPS navigation capability. Turbine Transition students are also exposed to advanced aircraft systems including pressurization, radar, weather downlink, de-ice and anti-ice systems. Turbine Transition and a chance to fly a modern turbine aircraft is offered by only a few collegiate level aviation programs. The King Air is also available for faculty and staff transport (FAST) flights on University related business.

Training Devices

AATD

Advanced Aviation Training Device
The AATD is a level 3 flight training device that simulates the flight deck environment of both the Piper Warrior and the Seminole.  A widescreen TV in front of the windshield realistically displays a wide variety of environmental parameters – day/night, rain, thunderstorms, low ceilings, etc.  The control response of the AATD is very close to that of the actual aircraft.  The avionics also duplicate the avionics of the actual aircraft, including a Garmin 430 GPS navigator.  The instructor can simulate a wide variety of situations ranging from rapidly changing weather to systems malfunctions.   Like the PCATD, this allows the student to get up to speed on instrument procedures before getting into the actual aircraft.
