The Utah Valley University Flight Club offers students the opportunity to develop and master aviation skills. The club began in the fall of 2011 with two advisors and a handful of students and has grown to more than 25 members, two advisors, a head coach, and numerous assistant coaches. The club meets year around to practice, perform, and serve in the community.
Yearly the club fields a travel team of its top members that participates throughout the year in National Collegiate Flying Association (NIFA) sponsored flight competitions. Top schools at the regional competitions are extended an invitation to participate in the National SAFECON event where 30 schools from the 11 regions compete head to head for a National Championship Trophy. NIFA events include flying, ground, and simulator events. Students have the opportunity to test all aspects of their aviation skillsets at these competitions.
Flight Club participation, particularly participation in a NIFA Event, is a very desirable resume builder for Aviation students. The Flight Club is open to all UVU students. Email us at: UVUFlightclub@gmail.com to be added to our mailing list and notified of meeting times.
The club meets regularly during the semester at the Provo Airport Campus. Come join us!
