The aviation program at Arizona State University’s College of Technology and Innovation will be featured on Fox 10 News at 9 p.m. on Monday, March 10.
Fox 10’s John Hook interviewed students and faculty in the program’s air traffic control tower simulator and the King Air simulator, and visited the nearby ATP Flight School, where students do their official flight training.
He also interviewed Mary Niemczyk, director of CTI’s aviation program, which offers three degrees: air traffic management, aeronautical management technology and professional flight.
The air traffic control tower simulator is a 315-degree life-size display and allows students manage traffic in a simulated version of Phoenix Sky Harbor airport. The King Air simulator, which is based on a King Air B200 aircraft, allows students to operate as a crew in a variety of flight conditions.
Students do their flight training with ATP at the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, across the street from the Polytechnic campus where the aviation program is located.
