Professor James C. McDaniel teaches Principles of Flight, a course that combines private pilot ground school instruction with fundamental engineering principles. Recently, students in the course flew with George Grove, a certified flight instructor from the Charlottesville Flight Center. Grove is leading FAA-approved ground training in the MAE flight simulator.
