Fullerton 99s Visit Cypress College

The Aviation & Travel Careers Department hosted the monthly meeting on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 for the Fullerton Chapter of the Ninety-Nines, an organization of licensed women pilots from around the world. Students with an interest in aviation were invited to participate in the monthly meeting and enjoy pizza and drinks.

After the meeting, students and members moved to the Aircraft Simulation Lab and explored the features and possibilities of the equipment. The time in the simulator lab provided opportunities for students and members to work with one other, sharing knowledge and experiences across different age groups.

Students and members also had the opportunity for team building, by working together to solve navigation problems and by practicing crew resource management. The lab time also built confidence, by flying new types of aircraft, exploring aircraft systems, flying at sunset, and by practicing pilotage and navigation.
