Flight Simulator Lab

Sim Lab
  • Students at Farnsworth Aerospace have high expectations for each other.

    Climbing into one of their state-of-the-art flight simulators and pulling that canopy over their head, those expectations feel real. At 2,000 feet, there are no excuses, their team is depending on them.

    We are testing a comprehensive skill set with life-like consequences. We are prepared because we have spent years in the classroom studying the math and science that it takes to understand aerodynamics and the principles of flight.

    • We can follow complex procedures.
    • We have been through ground school so we understand the nomenclature so we know how to communicate precisely with our teammates.
    • We can decode weather information and interpret the instruments.
    • We have filed our flight plan and have a healthy respect for the rules of flight.
    • Most importantly we have confidence; we can do this!
