Purdue’s Department of Aviation Technology is making the skies a safer place one research project, flight simulation, and takeoff at a time.
Purdue University will host the Federal Aviation Administration’s newest Center of Excellence focused on General Aviation. Purdue is one of three core universities leading the center. The other two institutions are The Ohio State University and Georgia Institute of Technology.
