UND Aerospace at the University of North Dakota is forecasting an almost 30% increase in its student pilot training flight hours by next year, fuelled by demand in North America and from contract customers in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The school anticipates completing over 80,000h next year, up from 60,000h last year. UND Aerospace will add 45 New Piper aircraft by the end of this year.
