Common Questions

  1. What kinds of airplanes and simulators do you use?

    The Polk State College Aerospace Program, through its flight training provider, operates various aircraft from single-engine, four-seat aircraft to complex multi-engine airplanes. Polk State Aerospace incorporates training in both state-of-the-art Garmin G1000 glass cockpit displays and with conventional “round gauge” instrumentation. We heavily utilize flight simulation technology because of its incredible teaching potential and low cost. Students will train in FAA-approved aviation training devices for loggable flight time, and they also have on-campus access to a host of simulation products that enhance their knowledge and skill and no additional cost to them.
