K-State Salina received the first of four new airplanes Thursday.
According to the school, they received the keys to the first of four new Bonanza G36 aircraft for the professional pilot program. The G36 features a glass cockpit and a six-seat configuration.
The new airplane is a part of the fleet replacement plan, so students can fly in beautiful, modern aircraft that will transition them into their professional careers.
The professional pilot program at K-State Salina features more Master Certified Aviation Instructors than any other college or university in the nation, a premium fleet of 35 aircraft and flight training devices, and a large and active regional airport steps away from the classroom.
