NIFA  Region II College Flying Championships

 
SDCC Precision Flight Team travels to Prescott AZ Monday to compete in the Region II collegiate flying championships. 16 Team members, led by Captain Kyle Mayhugh will compete in 5 flying events and 7 ground events to determine who will represent our region at the National Intercollegiate Flying Association (NIFA) SAFECON championships at Kansas State University in Salina KS next May. 
 
SDCC will be competing against the host school, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Cypress College, Mt. San Antonio College, San Jose State University and the US Air Force Academy. SDCC will send two planes out Monday, weather permitting with the balance of the team driving Wednesday. Tuesday and Wednesday will be practice days with competition starting Thursday and continuing through Sunday.
 
The weather is going to be blustery with temperatures in the mid forties during the day and dropping to below freezing at night. Wind chill could send temperatures into the freezing range when a cold front forecast to move through the region passes through on Friday.
 
You can follow the SDCC Flight Team on the special SAFECON blog which will be posted here on our website starting Wednesday Nov 9 and updated daily with pictures, descriptions and accounts of the competition. Please pray for our aviators this week, both for safety and for success in competition.
