New Course for Spring: Special Topics in Aviation Studies

January 6, 2011

As part of the new Air Traffic Control program, Atlantic Cape will offer Special Topics in Aviation Studies this spring. The class meets 5:30-8:15 p.m. Tuesdays, beginning Jan. 18. This course is open to all students as an elective and has no special fees.

The course will introduce students to recent advances in avionics, air navigation and air traffic control technology through exploration of the aerospace research literature. Potential areas of exploration will include: independent (radar) vs. dependent surveillance; required navigational performance; datalink systems; advanced flight management systems; and reduced vertical separation. The course will include a field trip to the William J. Hughes Technical Center.

The class will be taught by Dr. Wilson Felder, director of the FAA’s William J. Hughes Technical Center in Egg Harbor Township.
