At Saint Louis University’s Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology, we go to great lengths to ensure we provide state-of-the-art equipment for our flight school courses. We’re proud to incorporate a variety of industry-leading aircrafts in our flight programs.

SLU’s Parks College hosts a versatile aircraft fleet including these three cutting-edge airplane options:

Diamond DA-20

Our fleet of nine GPS equipped Diamond DA-20 aircraft, capable of flight under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR), are used for primary and instrument training. The Diamond DA-20 is a two-seat, all composite airplane that is ideal for high-utilization flight instruction environments and has an industry-leading safety record and outstanding fuel economy.

Piper Arrow

Advanced single engine training is provided in our glass cockpit Piper PA-28 Arrow aircraft, equipped with retractable landing gear, the Avidyne Entegra glass cockpit and dual GPS.  These aircrafts allow students to gain experience operating advanced aircraft in both Visual Flight Rules (VFR) and Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations.  Multi engine training is provided in our Piper PA-44 Seminole aircraft, equipped with dual GPS.  

Seminole PA44

The multi-engine, advanced-training Seminole is sleek, strong, consistent, and smart. Powerful twin 180 hp Lycoming engines make Seminole the only true multi-engine trainer available today, providing a unique and vital advanced instrument training experience. Its simplicity, stability, and safety have made it a low-maintenance, high-value mainstay of training programs everywhere.

Flight training is further supported by our fleet of Frasca 141, 142 and 242 Turbine simulators.  The smaller class sizes and individual flight instruction ensure a student centered approach to learning and the individualized attention afforded by a small school private education.
