First Time Since 1970s
It's been almost 30 years since the University of Oklahoma
replaced its 13 training aircraft.
"The planes we currently use are pretty worn out both
cosmetically and mechanically," said OU aviation student Matthew
Willis. "The upholstery is tearing on the inside and there are
cracks on the wings and there is almost always something wrong with
the instruments, too."
But that's all about to change. OU Aviation Director Glenn
Schaumburg tells the OU Daily that his department has ordered 13
2005-model Piper Warrior IIIs to replace the aging Warriors now on
the tarmac at Max Westheimer Field in Norman.
"It is a double-good deal. It is the same plane, so training for
students and faculty won’t be as extensive," Schaumburg said.
"They are used to flying these planes."
The price tag? It'll run OU about $2.2 million, according to
