Due to the great success of the previous editions, the University of Enna Kore presents the International Summer School in Principle of Aeronautics & Piloting Techniques.
The School wants to provide basic knowledge relevant to the aeronautical engineering sciences and necessary to obtain the pilot license for ULM vehicles. The school activities provide both class lessons on the principle of Aero-dynamics, Flight Mechanics, Aircraft Structures and Piloting techniques and in flight missions, allowing the students to practically experience the theoretical knowledge. The professor and the lecturer will come from the Universities and from the world of the pilots. The real flight missions are organized with the cooperation of the Avio Club Centro Sicilia “Walter Fonti”, flight school recognized by the AeroClub Italia. After a final verification test, the activities of the summer school lead to the acquisition of 2 formative credits that can be recognized for the academic study. The accommodation facility is represented by the farm “La Fenice”, located in the proximity of the Airfield Centro Sicilia, and very close to the University of Enna “Kore”.
