The Aviation Learning Center (ALC) in the College of Aviation provides free tutoring with a primary focus on Aeronautical Science and Flight course related topics.
The ALC employs approximately 30 part-time Ground Instructors. Ground Instructors are current ERAU students with ratings ranging from a commercial pilot certificate with an Advanced Ground Instructor (AGI) or Instrument Ground Instructor (IGI) certificate at a minimum, all the way up to ERAU Instructor Pilots. The selection process is highly competitive and all Ground Instructors complete a rigorous training and standardization program.

The ALC offers access to eight ELITE Model PI-1000 Advanced Aviation Training Devices (AATDs) that are able to simulate both the Cessna 172S and the DA-42 VI, including the Garmin G-1000 avionics. The AATDs give students a 42-inch visual display and tactile feel when practicing flight maneuvers and instrument approaches. Along with the simulators, the ALC also offers access to two Virtual Reality (VR) headsets that provide an immersive interactive experience in a Private Pilot Check-Ride and Cessna 172S Pre-Flight.

The ALC is equipped with a multitude of training aids and other resources such as a collection of aircraft components, cut-away instruments, cockpit procedure trainers, Flight Management Systems trainers, reference literature, and much more. The ALC also offers a color printer/scanner/copier station for student use.
