Aviation Simulation


A SIM 111  Private Pilot Flight Simulation  (1)

Flight simulation activity that provides hands-on experience with private pilot flight operations using an FAA approved flight simulator. Applied learning topics include preflight preparation and procedures; airport surface operations; takeoffs, landings, and go-arounds; flight performance maneuvers; ground reference maneuvers; navigation; slow flight; stalls; basic instrument maneuvers; emergency flight operations; night operations; and postflight procedures. Students gain introductory experience in the flight operations specified in 14 CFR 141, Appendix B, Paragraph 4(d)(1) for the FAA Private Pilot, Airplane certificate. PREREQUISITE: AVIA 111 or instructor's permission.

A SIM 216  Basic Instrument Flight Simulation  (2)

Flight simulation activity that provides hands-on experience with flight operations in instrument meteorological conditions using an FAA approved flight simulator. Applied learning topics include preflight preparation and procedures; air traffic control clearances and procedures; flight by reference to instruments; navigation systems; instrument approach procedures; emergency operations; and postflight procedures. Students gain introductory experience in the flight operations specified in 14 CFR 141, Appendix C, Paragraph 4(d) for the FAA Instrument, Airplane rating. PREREQUISITE: A SIM 111 and AVIA 216; or instructor's permission.

A SIM 218  Commercial Pilot Flight Simulation  (1)

Flight simulation activity that provides hands-on experience with commercial pilot flight operations using an FAA approved flight simulator. Applied learning topics include preflight preparation and procedures; airport surface operations; takeoffs, landings, and go-arounds; flight performance maneuvers; navigation; slow flight; stalls; emergency flight operations; multiengine and high-altitude operations; and postflight procedures. Students introductory experience in the flight operations specified in 14 CFR 141, Appendix D, Paragraph 4(d)(2) for the FAA Commercial Pilot, Airplane certificate. PREREQUISITE: A SIM 111 and AVIA 218; or instructor's permission.

A SIM 324  Turbine Operations Flight  (2)

Focuses on the mechanical differences between a piston engine and a turbine engine and how those differences affect operating techniques. Focuses on turbojet, turbofan, and turboprop type applications. Students learn how turbine engines produce power, how to properly manage those engines during all phases of operation, and problems that can arise during operations. PREREQUISITE: Admission to BAS in Aeronautical Science degree.

A SIM 326  Advanced Cockpit Technologies Flight  (2)

Focuses on modern aircraft cockpit design. Includes discussion of glass cockpit technology, Flight Management Systems (FMS), GPS navigation, and modern aircraft design. Emphasis will be placed on familiarizing pilots with system designs that they can expect to see in modern corporate and commercial aircraft with emphasis on line oriented flight training (LOFT). PREREQUISITE: Admission to BAS in Aeronautical Science degree.
