U of D Ed Babka Aviation Learning Center

University of Dubuque recently held a dedication ceremony for the Ed Babka Aviation Learning Center, which is about double in size of the former flight center. Chaminda Prelis, director of aviation programs, says student numbers are up this year. It doesn’t take long for students to actually get in the planes and helicopters.┬áStudents are finding pilots are in high demand now and even more are needed looking into the years ahead.┬áDrones are an expanding part of the program with many options for graduating students. The facility houses a dispatch desk, three classrooms, multiple offices including an area for flight instructors, four flight simulators, flight review rooms, an unmanned aircraft system lab, a visitor lounge, and conference spaces.
