First College Trainer Of Its Kind
The University of
Cincinnati (UC) Aviation Technology Program has added a brand-new
Garmin G1000-equipped Cessna Skylane to its training fleet. UC is
one of the first collegiate aviation programs to make available
this revolutionary glass-cockpit technology of the G1000 (Middle
Tennessee State University was the first to put the G1000 into
service with four G1000-equipped DA40's which were
delivered August 12, 2004).
The G1000 glass cockpit consolidates flight, navigation, engine
and sensor data onto two easily readable displays integrating
control and display of virtually all functions in one package. The
side-to-side viewing capability and crystal clear optics bring a
wealth of data to the pilot's fingertips.
"It's imperative for a leading collegiate aviation program to be
on the cutting edge of flight deck technology," said UC's Director
of Aviation Technology Eric Radtke. "The experience our graduates
will gain from this airplane will be a tremendous competitive
advantage in the marketplace."
The new glass cockpit Skylane joins a UC fleet of 15 training
aircraft including Cessna 172s and Cessna 152s, a Beechcraft
Bonanza, Piper Aztec, and Diamond Motorglider.
The University of Cincinnati's Aviation Technology Program is
administered by Sporty's Academy, Inc. Sporty's provides flight
instructors, aircraft, and training curriculum in support of the
program. Flight training takes place at Clermont County/Sporty's
