How Integration Of Single-Pilot Operations Impacts Aviation Education At A Major Aeronautical University: An Embedded Single Case Study, Jorge Luis Diaz Albelo Mar 2021

How Integration Of Single-Pilot Operations Impacts Aviation Education At A Major Aeronautical University: An Embedded Single Case Study, Jorge Luis Diaz Albelo

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

The purpose of this qualitative embedded case study was to understand faculty, instructor pilot, and student descriptions of the impact of single-pilot operations (SPO) integration in higher education aviation education. The theories framing this study are the social cognitive career theory and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. The central research question was: What are faculty, instructor pilot, and student descriptions of SPO integration in aviation education at Paper Plane University (PPU)? Sub-questions have been devised to discover more detailed descriptions of the specific ways SPO integration impacts curriculum, andragogy, and the learning experience. Purposive sampling was used to select 16 ...


Low Fidelity Flight Simulation In Collegiate Aviation, Vladimir N. Risukhin Jan 2015

Low Fidelity Flight Simulation In Collegiate Aviation, Vladimir N. Risukhin

Aviation / Aeronautics / Aerospace International Research Conference

Aviation college pilot training programs, lessons and exercises contain portions that do not require training in sophisticated and highly expensive full flight simulators and flight training devices (FTD) with high fidelity of simulation, or in real aircraft flights. Relatively inexpensive personal-computer-based flight simulation facilities named low fidelity simulators (LFS) can boost development of aircraft pilots’ cognitive and behavioral skills. The paper attempts to reveal how the LFS can support aviation college flight training and research activities. In the Western Michigan University College of Aviation, peer mentoring technique proven to be helpful in higher education institutions has been applied to flight ...

A Process Plan For Consensus Building In The Evaluation Of Nsgc & Epscor Native American Outreach Program, Jocelyn S. Nickerson, Brent D. Bowen, Henry R. Lehrer

Publications

The NASA Nebraska Space Grant (NSGC) & EPSCoR Programs at the University of Nebraska at Omaha have embarked on a unique educational journey known as the Nebraska Native American Outreach program (NNAOP). The NNAOP’s main objective is to encourage and motivate Native American students to be more competitive in mathematics and science. This program has allowed for a variety of educational and public outreach activities to take place. However, in order to continually provide effective support to Nebraska’s Native American community, NSGC & EPSCoR sought an evaluation technique for the NNAOP. To execute such an evaluation, NSGC organized the first ...
