Flying Team Takes Top Two-Year College Honors
The Mt. SAC Flying Team won the Top Two-Year College Team Trophy for the 24th consecutive year at the National Intercollegiate Flying Association’s regional competition hosted recently by San Diego Christian College at Gillespie Airport in San Diego.
“This year marks the 24th consecutive year our team has won the top community college trophy—a truly incredible run,” said Flying Team Advisor and Aeronautics Professor Robert Rogus.
The 2014 Safety and Flight Evaluation Conference (SAFECON) is a competition for university and community college flying teams. The regional airmeet featured flying teams from six colleges, including Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, San Jose State University, and the U.S. Air Force Academy with a total of 66 students competing.
In addition to the Top Two-Year School Award, Mt. SAC won the Safety Trophy. Individually, Sebastian Plaister won the instrument flight event and ranked sixth as the overall competitor at the airmeet. Jason Juarez took third in the message drop event.
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, 2007, and 2014.
