ZKC is continuting an event series called "Collegiate Aviation Series". ZKC airspace contains several collegiate aviation programs and we want to feature them in the form of events. We will be featuring 2 schools a month. The main focus of these events are to promote general aviation traffic within VATUSA. We would encourage you to fly your favorite general aviation aircraft. Whether it is practice approaches, VFR/IFR cross country flights, or pattern work, we got you covered!
This week we are featuring Southern Illinois University. This program is based out of Southern Illinois Airport (KMDH). The flight program at SIU uses the Cessna 152, Cessna 172, Cessna 172RG, Cessna 182RG, Cessna 310, Cessna 340, and Cessna 421. You can expect services from Southern Illinois Tower and Kansas City Center. SIU uses the callsign "Carbondale" and files flight plans with the prefix 'CBN' (ex:CBN310R). Some good cross country destinations are KCPS, KFAM, KSIK, M25, KTWT, KCUL, and KSLO.
