  • Flight Simulator Lab

    Students at Farnsworth Aerospace have high expectations for each other. With our state-of-the-art flight simulators, those expectations feel real. At 2,000 feet, there are no excuses, their team is depending on them. In 2021, our flight sim labs was fully updated with virtual reality film simulator systems.
