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 with 15 computer repeater screens that allow students a closer look at what the instructor is displaying on the main screen. Hardware used exclusively in an airline aircraft platform — the FMC (Flight Management Computer) and the MCP (Mode Control Panel) — has also been added.
- 15 work stations
- 15 Control Display Units (FMC units)
