A new $1.2 million pilot-training tool was revealed during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Aerospace Physiology July 1.

The Spatial Disorientation Trainer is designed to mimic what it feels like to fly in a T-6A Texan II, which every student pilot will do here.

Students will be able to practice 22 maneuvers that are programed into the system to help prepare them for the real-world spatial disorientation that they will face when taking to the skies.
