Aviation and Transportation 128 is an analytical lecture course of study, which acquaints the student with practical airport administration problems that exist today. Completion of this course enables the student to perform and function effectively in any of the many diversified airport operations. Course coverage includes airport development, site selection, local advertising, financial considerations and benefits to the community. Aviation safety within the confines of the airport, airport maintenance, familiarization with the Federal Aviation Administration and Federal Aviation Regulations governing airports as well as the National Transportation Safety Board.

The Radio Procedures and Flight Regulations course (AT-124) is designed to familiarize current and prospective pilots with the necessary knowledge of aviation communication requirements and procedures to operate safely in the national airspace system. Also covered are sections of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) that pertain to pilot certification, aircraft maintenance, general operating rules, air traffic control procedures, and reporting of aircraft accidents.

Instruction and testing are specifically designed to prepare students for the FAA Private Pilot Knowledge Examination. Though the study of FARs can be daunting, and radio communication intimidating, every effort will be made to facilitate and enhance the learning experience.

  • Basic communication techniques, emphasizing situations such as VFR and IFR departure, enroute, and approach procedures, as well as equipment, reports, and facilities.
  • All pertinent sections of the FARs, including Parts 1, 61, 67, 71, 73, 91, 97, 135, 141, and NTSB Part 830. (Emphasis will be placed on FAR Parts 1, 61, 91, 141 and NTSB Part 830.)
