In late July, 2004, Ohio University had the unique opportunity to become a front-runner in one of the most significant revolutions in Technically Advanced Aircraft (TAA) training by purchasing seven new Piper Warrior III aircraft equipped with Avidyne Entegra Integrated Flight Decks, a highly advanced avionics system. This technology combines computerized flight decks with multi-function displays, moving maps, and integrated flight instruments in basic trainers. Prior to integration of the new aircraft, initial questions arose addressing concerns about student pilot flight training conducted in Technically Advanced Aircraft, instructors whom have little experience teaching Technically Advanced Aircraft, integrating new aircraft platforms into FAR 141 Training Course Outline (TCO) requirements, and use of these aircraft while fulfilling Practical Test Standards (PTS) requirements.
