Calibration Lab

Overview

The calibration laboratory is located on the ground floor of the faculty of aerospace engineering, next to the flight laboratory. The calibration laboratory is mainly used to calibrate inertia sensors used in the cessna citation laboratory aircraft and the SIMONA simulator. By contacting also others can use these equipment.
