Flight Operations Center

With a growing student-pilot enrollment and a fleet of aircraft that would rival some airlines, it takes a lot of coordination and planning to keep Embry-Riddle Daytona Beach’s flight operations running smoothly and safely.

Embry-Riddle Daytona Beach flight operations run seven days a week, 50 weeks a year (we only shut down for Fall/Spring semester breaks). The Flight Operations Center is open from 6 a.m. to midnight so our flight students have access to the airplane they need when they need it.

The Flight Ops Center can also track and record each aircraft’s flight. That information is often used during the student’s debriefing or can be accessed by the student to help reinforce the value of each lesson.

Every Flight Lesson Starts Here

Located adjacent to the ERAU Flight Line, the Flight Operations Center is the central point for all aircraft operations and student pre- and post-flight training activities with their instructors.

The Flight Ops Center boasts a state-of-the-art dispatch desk, real-time weather monitoring equipment, computer stations for flight planning, private oral rooms, and many other modern aviation conveniences designed to give our students everything they need for their pre-flight planning and preparation.
