Indiana State University upgrades simulator lab

Indiana State University in Terre Haute recently invested more than $600,000 in two new simulators.

The Frasca simulators include a basic 140 series trainer and a more sophisticated Beechcraft King Air with a 180° wraparound visual system.

The Indiana State lab now has four flight simulators, with capabilities ranging from single engine trainers to more complex multiengine dual pilot devices requiring the use of crew resource management techniques.

Three new briefing rooms also were added to the lab to accommodate an increasing number of students, said Dr. Harry Minniear, lab director.
