The Andrews University Airpark is holding an open house in honor of the opening of their brand-new flight simulations building on Sunday, May 6, from 4-7 pm.
The building, which was built entirely through donations from community members and friends of the airpark, is designed specifically to house the flight simulators the university received this past fall.
The simulators will be helpful to aviation students, particularly during inclement weather, when it is not possible to teach advanced flight. "Simulators will give us the ability to teach in an advanced cockpit in all conditions," said Allan Payne, department chair.
On May 6, community members are invited to attend a fly-by, starting at 2:15 pm at the airpark. The dedication/opening ceremony will begin at 3:15 pm. Tickets are free, but required for a seat. Tickets can be picked up at the Dean's Office in Harrigan Hall on the Andrews campus.
During the Open House, there will be a drawing for a ride in the simulators every twenty minutes.
As no cars will be allowed in the airpark, shuttles will run between the Howard Performing Arts Center and the airpark starting at 2 pm.
