Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) has selected L3Harris Technologies to provide two level 5 compliant Flight Training Devices (FTDs) and a Virtual Flight Deck to help prepare students for professional pilot careers.

The devices, based on the CRJ700 aircraft type, will feature an aircraft-specific flight deck that offers the form, fit, feel and function of the actual aircraft, as well as maintenance training features. The devices, which are used by airlines and training providers across the globe, will introduce students to operations with regional jets before they join the airlines.
