This year’s slogan, “Heading 30,” takes inspiration from a compass-like aircraft instrument called the directional gyro. As one of the critical systems in a piston-powered aircraft, it indicates the direction the plane is heading. Indiana Aerospace University vehemently believes that the only way forward is to move forward as speedy and as accurate as the directional gyro. Hence, on its 30th Founding Anniversary, IAU goes to great lengths in aligning its academic endeavors in the areas of flight training, academic instruction, research and development, and community extension services with local, regional, and global standards. In IAU, we ace with pace!
