Aviation Learning Center

The Aviation Learning Center (ALC) in the College of Aviation is a student resource center where free tutoring with a primary focus on Aeronautical Science and Flight course related topics is provided.

The ALC offers access to four ELITE Advanced Aviation Training Devices that are able to simulate both the Cessna 172S and the DA-42 VI, including the Garmin G-1000 avionics. The Elite Model PI-1000 AATDs give students a 42-inch visual display and tactile feel when practicing flight maneuvers and instrument approaches.  

The ALC also has a Precision Flight Controls CRX AATD with three visual displays simulating single and multi-engine aircraft with round dial avionics. 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. Housed in the back of the ALC is a computer lab with 38 stations including a color printer/scanner/copier that is available for student use at no charge.
