For the third year in a row, the SDCC Flight Team will be going to the National Intercollegiate Flying Association's SAFECON National Championships at Ohio State University, in Columbus, Ohio, May 16—21. SDCC will fly 5 airplanes 2000 miles to compete against the top collegiate aviators from 30 schools across the country.
The Flight Team worked hard to raise the funds for their trip to the national championships. But the work doesn’t stop there – now as preparations get underway, team members are preparing the aircraft, doing the flight planning and flight training for competition.
Flight Team competition sharpens the skills of SDCC pilots against the best collegiate aviators in the country. It is an honor and a privilege to be invited to the national championships. Flight Team spokeswoman Jenna Sims, winner of the Women Pilot's Safety Award at the Region II championships said, "We are thrilled to be invited, but now the hard work of raising the funds, planning for logistics and practicing for competition begins. This is a great opportunity for SDCC!" SAFECON 2011
