Research Hangar

A HUB FOR ENGINEERING AND AVIATION RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

The Applied Aviation and Engineering Research Hangar E mbry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s mission to become the world’s leader in aerospace education and research is well on its way to becoming a reality. Over the last 10 years, Embry-Riddle has invested heavily in this mission, adding nationally renowned faculty and more than 250,000 square feet of leading-edge facilities to create an aerospace education and research community like no other in the region. Now, with the ongoing construction of the 90-acre aerospace research and technology park, which includes the John Mica Engineering and Aerospace Innovation Complex (scheduled for completion April 2017), Embry-Riddle is poised to take aerospace education, innovation and economic development to the next level.

The new Applied Aviation and Engineering Research Hangar will be the next crucial step in our efforts to provide real-world solutions for industry, develop a talent pipeline for Florida’s future workforce and drive economic development in the state. Embry-Riddle requests $2.5 million in matching funds from the State of Florida to help construct the Applied Aviation and Engineering Research Hangar, which will serve as the new home of the university’s innovative Eagle Flight Research Center—the hub for engineering and aviation research and development (R&D) at Embry-Riddle. Ideally located within the research park with direct access to the Daytona Beach International Airport (by way of Taxiway Sierra, to be completed in the fall of 2017), the Applied Aviation and Engineering Research Hangar will provide immediate access to the people, facilities and technology needed to design, build and test the next wave of aviation and aerospace solutions for industry.
