GLASS COCKPIT TECHNOLOGY TRAINING: HOW IS IT ADDRESSED IN COLLEGIATE FLIGHT PROGRAMS?

Collegiate aviation programs (CAPs) provide well-trained flight personnel with resources to meet critical air transportation requirements. A survey of current 4-yr CAPs suggests that elements of glass cockpit technology, in some cases, receive little or no consideration within the flight training curriculum. Furthermore, after considering the cost of acquiring appropriate instructional materials, a number of college aviation departments have decided that responsibility for this training more appropriately belongs with the employing airlines. It is hoped that the results of this survey will lead to a dialogue between CAP faculty, airline employers, and vendors of training resources to promote low-cost training aids for glass cockpit aircraft and to discuss the issue of whether glass cockpit training should be an important part of the college flight training program.
