The UVU Flight Team (a component of the UVU Flight Club) competed at the National Intercollegiate Flying Association (NIFA) Regional SAFECON in Prescott, AZ, February 3-7, 2014.

The UVU flight team received 8 awards altogether in the following areas:
Message drop – Robert Lopez and Greg Jones
Ground Trainer – Sam Liechty and Dustin Romrell
Navigation – Aaron Cardon and Greg Jones
Pre-flight – Rachel Hedman
Outstanding Team Member Award – Aaron Cardon

“Even though the team did not advance to the national competition this year, some of our individual team members did quite well. We have a team which has really worked well together. They are already practicing regularly for next year’s SAFECON! I predict next year will be an even bigger year for us. Thanks to all of you for your support!”

“This is our best team to date. The students stayed focused and benefited from experience gained at previous events. They have raised the bar a bit further for future UVU teams. We look forward for continued excitement ahead.”
