Fly Like a Pilot at CWU's Aviation Open House

Posted: Updated:

ELLENSBURG, WA - Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly? You can stop by Central Washington University's Aviation Training Center this Saturday for a spin on one of the flight training simulators.

The Department of Aviation is hosting an open house from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 24.

Prospective students and members of the public can fly one of the flight training devices, meet faculty and students, and learn about CWU's degree programs in Professional Pilot and Aviation Management.

CWU is the only public university in the Pacific Northwest that offers a bachelor's degree in aviation and the only place on the West Coast where aviation students can experience the CRJ-200 turbo-jet trainer, airline style curriculum, and the technically advanced turboprop flight trainer.

The Aviation Training Center is located at the intersection of Bowers Road and Beech Road in Ellensburg.
