Flight Simulators at HCDi Open House


by Ann Sepri

Whether or not you had the flight simulator experience during Evans Library’s College of Aeronautics Research Showcase, we want you to know that another opportunity to take a simulated flight will take place at the Human-Centered Design Institute during their Open House on Wednesday, November 6, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The HCDi is located in the Florida Tech Commons, Suite 316.

Two complete and modifiable simulators, an Airbus 320 and a Boeing 737, equip the HCDi cockpit design research lab. These new acquisitions will support research efforts in human-centered design such as computer-based onboard documentation, 3D weather forecast situation analysis systems, and NextGen trajectory-based operations support systems, and will provide a research platform for students in aeronautical engineering and sciences for research and innovation in the evolution of commercial aircraft cockpits.

We hope to see you at the HCDi Open House!
