The University of Waterloo has recently undertaken a significant step forward in promoting aviation research on campus, through the purchase of a new flight simulator.

The new flight simulator will allow researchers to have priority access to a simulator, which although common technology within flight school settings — including the Waterloo Wellington Flight Centre — they usually prioritize student flight training instead of research efforts.

Read more about how the new flight simulator will prioritize research questions from across campus.

In a normal year, information about the medical exam and how to access your flight training can sometimes be confusing for new students. With a pandemic, it adds a layer of complexity that may raise additional questions.

This webinar covers important updates to program requirements, and introduces you to key members of our Aviation community. Please note that this information is specific to students beginning their studies in September 2020 and is subject to change at anytime.
