Over 500 Collegiate Aviators To Participate InSafety And Evaluation Conference
Pilots from collegiate aviation programs around the country are testing their skill and competing to be named the National Top Pilot during SAFECON 2012, hosted by Kansas State University Salina and held at Salina Municipal Airport.
More than 500 competitors, coaches, judges, and sponsors have traveled to Salina, KS, for the National Intercollegiate Flying Association's Safety and Flight Evaluation Conference, May 14-19. During these six days, students representing 27 schools will participate in 14 events that will test their knowledge, skill, teamwork, and safety practices.
Some events, such as navigation, challenge competitors' ability to think on their feet, while others, such as the achievement award, are based on their contributions to their teams, communities, and the field of aviation throughout the year. Teams earn invitations to the national competition based on their performances at regional competitions the previous fall. (Pictured: K-State Flight Team)
