This course familiarizes students with popular flight management systems in use in aircraft today and introduces flight management systems that may still be in various stages of development.

Much of this course is focused on the concepts of human factors related to the operation of these flight management systems. Onboard aviation weather equipment is included in the flight management systems discussed. This course includes both in-class instruction and hands-on experience. Hands-on experience is provided by means of various flight management systems simulators, emulators, software, and other such devices. (Fall, Spring, As Needed) [Graded (Standard Letter)]
