Indiana State University trustees have approved the school opening its own flight academy at Terre Haute International Airport.

The school can now negotiate a four-year lease for a classroom, office and hangar space at the airport. Indiana State's vice president for academic affairs Jack Maynard says the space at the airport will allow the program to become even more distinctive and more attractive to potential students.

Department chair Harry Minniear says the school's aviation technology department will manage the flight academy's daily operations. The school will have airplanes to train student pilots.
