In April 2016 community leaders, educators and FCEF board members cut the ribbon to launch “The Hangar,” the new Flagship aeronautics lab on Flagler Palm Coast Campus. “The Hangar” is a learning space that includes a flight simulator, wind tunnel and state-of the-art technology for students interested in pursuing careers in aeronautics. FPC has a dual enrollment agreement with Embry Riddle Aeronautics University that allows students to earn college credits without leaving campus!
In an article published in the Palm Coast Observer student Chris Wright responded to the reporter saying, “I can manufacture drones, write the code, build it at home and sell it for photography, landscaping, whatever. What’s even cooler is coming into this classroom and seeing how much effort has been poured into this program.”
The United Way Women’s Initiative Flagler provided funding to the foundation for the creation of “The Hangar.”
