The mission of the lab (currently under development) will be to support and advance experiential learning and unique research activities of students and faculty.
The lab, managed by the Applied Aviation Sciences Department, will enhance flight data analysis and promote collaboration with industry and aviation experts.
Potential research opportunities include use of flight data to detect precursors to loss-of-control-inflight events, monitoring human performance indirectly through data signatures, and predictive real-time warnings based on machine learning (AI). The lab will support active learning in the classroom, to include predictive flight modeling and data visualization with animation. The lab will evolve the curriculum from simply talking about life saving to potentially saving lives in class.
