Flight Techniques & Electronic Navigation Lab

The Les Kumpula Flight Techniques & Electronic Navigation Lab is one of the few simulations labs in the College of Aviation where students are taught the utilization of the Flight Management Computer (FMC), the Mode Control Panel (MCP) and the synergistic relationships that exist with these two vital components of an aircraft Flight Management System. 

The lab has been updated to allow the students an enhanced learning environment with the addition of 15 computer repeater screens that allow the students a closer look at what the instructor is displaying on the main screen. In addition to the repeater screens, there has been an introduction of new hardware that is used exclusively in an airline aircraft platform. These new devices are the FMC (Flight Management Computer) and the MCP (Mode Control Panel).


  • 15 work stations
  • 15 CDU’s Control Display Units (FMC units)
  • 15 Mode Control Panels (planned for SP ’19)
  • Aerowinx Program on all in-class computers
