Alpha Eta Rho-Epsilon Nu (Aviation Club)

Alpha Eta Rho is the oldest (Co Ed) aviation fraternity of its type in the world founded in 1929 at a California university. It is strictly a professional organization meant to provide networking to members as they move through their careers. We formed a chapter "Epsilon Nu" in 2010 . We have a club wall upstairs in Hangar B (just at the top of the stairs turn left and look right). We meet twice monthly and have guest speakers, activities and service projects. For service, we have adopted the Enola Gay Hangar out at the old Wendover air base as our annual spring service project.

 

Alpha Eta Rho is the largest professional aviation fraternity with over 45,000 alumni. We are happy to have Epsilon Nu here at UVU.

UVU Flight Club

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. When active, the club meets year round to practice, perform, and serve in the community.

A team, consisting of the club's top members is selected to represent UVU at the National Collegiate Flying Association (NIFA) regional competitions and can be invited to participate in the national competition known as SAFECON. At this event, 30 schools from the 11 regions compete head to head for a National Championship Trophy. NIFA events include flying, ground, and simulator events.

Flight Club participation, particularly in a NIFA event is a very desirable resume builder for Aviation students. Any full-time student may join the Flight Club.

The club is subject to funding availability and student interest. Contact Cory Chamberlain at chambeco@uvu.edu to find out more information.
