What is Flight Technology

1. It’s a subdivision of the College of Technology.

2. It’s another smaller subdivision of Aeronautics.

3. It’s a Bachelor’s degree in Flight Training, this
means it prepares students for the aviation industry
and thus prepares students to be commercial pilots.

We are the largest Aeronautics department in Ohio.


We are the only accredited Aeronautics department in Ohio.


We currently belong to UAA and NBAA.


We are the only university to offer the Bridge Program with
Continental Express.


We compete with the best aviation universities in the country
through yearly flight competitions.

We are currently one of the smallest majors with
under 100 students.


However, we have one of the hardest majors on
campus and are often compared to nursing and
have a high drop rate.


The cost of the degree is extremely expensive,
upwards to an additional $100,000.

-
90% of students finish in over five years as
schedules are hectic.

Now you may be wondering how we train?



We have our own airport. Although the airport is open to the public, its
main purpose is Flight Training.


We have the largest fleet in Ohio with 25 aircraft.


We currently on average have over 190 flights a day for student training.

Flight Technology

Flight Technology



We have one 4000x60 foot runway


The airport is an approved FAA Part 61
operator.


The airport consists of a terminal, dispatch
area, maintenance, administration, FAA
ground trailers, and simulators.

Class at the airport range from 730AM till 600PM with flights occurring
from 730AM till 1200AM.

Classes are on average between 90 and 120minutes Monday
-
Friday. Flights range
from 90minutes to 8hours daily Monday
-
Sunday.

The airport is also strictly professional. Proper rules, attitude, and dress are
required at all times. Uniforms are optional unless you are a dispatcher,
flight instructor, or airport personnel.

Unfortunately, flight courses are only 2
-
3 credits with on average 10 hours
or more weekly at the airport. For example my 2 credit flight course as
required me to be at the airport over 18 hours in the past week alone.

Flight Technology

Now you may be wondering what exactly do we fly?


We currently own 23 Single Engine and 2 Multiengine Aircraft.


Aircraft Companies include both Cessna and Piper.


The aircraft list includes…

8 Cessna 152’s for Private and CFI Training

4 Cessna 172P’s for Commercial Training

5 Cessna 172R’s for Instrument and Commercial III Training

4 Cessna 172RG’s for Commercial II Training

2 Cessna 172SP’s(G1000Computer) for Commercial II Training

2 Piper Seminole’s 44
-
180’s for Multiengine training.

Flight Technology

Cessna 150’s,172P’s,172RG’s


These aircraft are older aircraft used for primarily
basic flight training and basic navigation.


Cruising speeds are on average 120knots(135mph)


Basic 2 person Flight Crew standard

Flight Technology

Piper PA44
-
180


The aircraft is used in advanced aircraft operations and multiengine training
used for students transferring to the Continental Express Program.



Two Flight Crew members are always urged.


Cruise speeds are 162kts (190mph); Landing speeds are around 100kts(110mph).


Introduction airplane for advanced computer operations and avionics.

Flight Technology

Cessna 172R’s and Cessna 172SP’s(G1000)


The 172SP is one of the most advanced aircraft to date. This is due to
its highly structured digital cockpit with use of all computers.


Used for commercial training as it provides a realistic “airliner”
environment for students


Such advancements are terrain, and traffic avoidance systems, weather
and situational analysis, and programs to figure out complex situations.

Flight Technology

New Age of Aircraft

Today, computers control everything. One would not be surprised if
computers control aviation. However, some draw a fine line between when
or if computers should interfere with pilots duties on the flight deck.

In the near future, two new types of aircraft will be built that are
were not only completely designed by computers, but computers will
control all major systems.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A350 Jetliner

Flight Technology

New Age of Aircraft

Here are some examples of how
computers are being used in the
cockpit.


No longer are there physical linkage between flight controls and the
control surfaces of an airplane. Computers placed throughout the
aircraft control inputs made by the pilot.


There are no more physical instruments, all instruments are put on
several screens controlled by computers that furthermore process received
information.


New systems by Boeing and Honeywell can actually aid the pilot in
landing the airplane itself. Therefore, the airplane will automatically
assume the pilots role and land in almost any weather condition.

Flight Technology

New Age of Aircraft

Here are some more examples of
how computers are being used in the
cockpit.


The FMC (Flight Management Computer) which is available in all newer
aircraft, controls the navigation portion and communications portion of the
aircraft. It can be considered the “boss” of the airplane.


Airbus has developed a better version of TCAS which they call Autopilot
Traffic Collision Avoidance System. This system allows the aircraft to spot
invisible aircraft on the ground in the air and also possible collisions. Thus
allowing the pilot to take preventative action.



Airbus has also developed a “Brake
-
to
-
Vacate” system where a
computer controls the breaking action set by the pilot. This reduces
breaking time and allows the airplane to leave the runway and
reduce runway incursions.

Aspect of Computers in Commercial Aviation

Computers are not only used in aircrafts, they are used by both
airlines and airports. Surprisingly, in the last few years computers
have even started to be able to communicate between airplane,
airline, and airport for simultaneous information.


Airlines use computer systems such as SABRE and Apollo for
reservations and other various utilities. It allows for the entire system
to be paperless and streamlined.


Airlines have started using smart boarding systems that reduce load
time by allowing computer programs to interpret the best method for
that specific flight.

Flight Technology

Aspect of Computers in Commercial Aviation

Airlines use sophisticated software for crew and aircraft scheduling.
This means the software formulates problems to accurately schedule
crews based on time and location. The same is done to pinpoint
aircraft location and thus which flights begin and end where.


Lowers costs because the whole process is done automatically.


Crews are able to pick routes and times they prefer. Studies have
shown this increases crew reliability and performance.


A new system for airlines and crews is PERS (Proactive Error Reduction
System). It allows maintenance and crews to solve problems
simultaneously and increase efficiency and safety.

Flight Technology

Aspect of Computers in Commercial Aviation

Computers systems are also being tested at the unseen level.


Programs being to control parking garages so it will visual tell drivers which
lots are full and where to go to park, which reduces time in parking.


Computers monitor taxiways and gates on aircraft progress and potential
problems. If it sees a problem it dispatches appropriate responses. Also it
monitors incursions between vehicles and airplanes.


Facial recognition software is being used in cameras placed throughout
airports to visual recognize terrorists and other potentially harmful
human beings.

Finally, to give you a feeling of what a daily
class is like, here’s a video of a flight landing.

I would like to dedicate this presentation to Nikki Kukwa as she
was a senior flight technology student you recently passed away
after her battle with
leukemia. She will be truly missed.
