Continuing Efforts to Upgrade the Aeronautics Curriculum at Jacksonville University
Terrell, Jerry L.; Merkt, Juan; Harrison, Jeffrey; Yates, Rhett
Journal of Case Studies in Education, v4 May 2012
The aviation industry is exceptionally dynamic. Advances in technology have enabled the industry to change drastically in a short period of time. The transition to jet propulsion advances in aerodynamics, avionics improvements, and introduction of revolutionary navigation systems have all occurred within the past 60 years. These advances have prompted corresponding changes in aeronautics education. New technology such as computer assisted training, improved classroom aids, and advanced simulation devices have become the norm. JU has risen to the challenge by updating its aviation curriculum and employing modern aircraft in its flight training. This paper addresses efforts to affect these updates.
