Flying Team
Headed to Nationals

 

Congratulations to the Mt. SAC Flying Team which will advance to the National Intercollegiate Flying Association’s nation competition after recently qualifying with a third-place finish at the regional airmeet hosted by Embry-Riddle Aeronautic University in Arizona.

At the 2014 Safety and Flight Evaluation Conference (SAFECON) airmeet, Mt. SAC also claimed its 23rd consecutive regional community college award as the top two-year school in the competition. With 112 points, Mt. SAC placed third behind first-place Embry-Riddle with 333 points and second-place San Jose State University with 114 points.

In addition to the top two-year school award, Mt. SAC took second in the flight event rankings. Manutea Maurin placed second overall in the short-field landings event, and Josh Spolar took second in the instrument flight event.

 The top three regional teams receive invitations to the national competition. The national SAFECON airmeet will be hosted by Ohio State University on May 12-17.  

Over the years, the Mt. SAC Flying Team has consistently earned top honors as one of the best collegiate flying teams in the country. The team has won the Top Community College trophy at the regional competition every year since 1991. Mt. SAC has won the Top U. S. Community College award at the national airmeet in 1984, 1985, 1995, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2005, and 2007.

Aeronautics Professor Robert Rogus serves as advisor for the Flying Team.
