Looking for Spring, and the Nationals
interscholastic flying competition in Grand Forks (ND) was
dominated by favorite-son UND, as the 14-member team trounced
competition from St Cloud University, the University of Dubuque
(IA), and Minnesota State (Mankato).
University of North Dakota's 289 points totaled more than the
next two finishers' combined, in the Region V National
Intercollegiate Flying Association's Safety and Flight Evaluation
There were four flying events and seven ground, or 'paper,'
events. UND did well in all, but their safety officer was quoted
locally as having said they'd like to work a little more on the air
work before heading to Murfreesboro (TN).
The NIFA national
championships will be held at Middle Tennessee State University, in
May. Last year, UND was second at the nats -- behind Embry-Riddle.
UND has won 12 of the past 18 nationals.
This weekend, the Region IV championships will be held in
Louisiana (second link).
