This paper gives a brief introduction to some of the experimental facilities at Caltech being used for instruction and research. Two experiments are described: a flight control experiment using a vector thrust engine, and a low-speed, axial flow compressor rig. A common hardware and software infrastructure is used to control these experiments, allowing easy transition from instructional to research use.
