The spring semester at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s (ERAU) Daytona Beach, Fla. campus started only six days late last month despite a Christmas Day tornado that destroyed campus buildings and almost two-thirds of the school’s single- and twin-engine piston flight-training fleet. No one was injured in the storm, which the National Weather Service classified as an F2 (causing considerable damage).
Spring semester classes at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) started today despite an F2 tornado that ripped through the campus and destroyed most of the training aircraft on Christmas Day. There were only four people on campus at the time and no injuries were reported, according to a school official.
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is scheduled to begin graduate and undergraduate degree classes in professional aeronautics and technical management. The courses will be held at the Evergreen Aviation Museum and the Capt. Michael King Smith Educational Institute in McMinnville, Ore.
