MEMPHIS, Tenn., October 2, 2019 — Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) has selected L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) to provide two level 5 compliant Flight Training Devices 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.

We are very excited about the selection of L3Harris to provide high-quality training devices for our students,” said Wendy Beckman, chair of the Aerospace Department at MTSU. “L3Harris was able to clearly demonstrate the robust design, impressive capabilities and easy maintenance of their equipment. We look forward to introducing these state-of-the-art devices shortly.”

“Our airline certified technology and services have been developed through longstanding partnerships with a large number of carriers. They perfectly align to support MTSU in advancing the training of their students,” said Sarah Cooney, U.S. Sales Director, L3Harris Commercial Aviation.
