GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - UND's Aerospace program has donated a flight simulator to the Bismarck Public School system.

Students at the Bismarck's Career Academy will be using the simulator in its flight training course.

UND recently updated its simulators and wasn't using the training device.

UND hopes the simulator will fuel passion for the students in the Bismarck program.

"It's for their use, their students. They have an aviation program there, so this will be something that they'll have set up in their classrooms to use for a lab or learning experience for their students," UND Aerospace professor Chuck Pineo said.

About 90 students are currently attending the aviation courses at the Career Academy in Bismarck.
