Amid Predicted Pilot Shortage, Students Flock To North Dakota For Most Technologically Advanced, All-Season Flight Training

Aspiring pilots from across the U.S. and as far away as Japan, Taiwan, China and Saudi Arabia aren't letting the weather deter them from flocking to Grand Forks, N.D. to earn their wings. For students enrolled at the University of North Dakota's John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences (UND Aerospace), learning how to fly planes and helicopters in nearly every weather condition is a valuable experience.

UND Aerospace, ranked one of the nation's top collegiate aviation programs, offers the most technologically advanced flight training complex and largest aircraft fleet of any public university in the world. The aviation school began in 1968 with just two planes and 12 students. Today, it owns and operates a fleet of over 150 aircraft and flight training devices, and provides pilot training to nearly 1,500 students from 12 different countries amassing more than 120,000 flight hours per year.

Nice piece that really promotes UND Aerospace.

UND Aerospace Foundation proposes the construction of an academic classroom and research facility (approximately 65,000 sq. ft.) on a site previously designated as West Campus property. The proposed facility would be west of and connected to Ryan Hall (see attached map). The land is currently green space with limited landscape development. It is part of the West Campus Planned Unit Development (PUD) whereby all improvements are considered a part of a large, single zoning enterprise that allows a number of university-related functions including research, education, and other support facilities.
