Southeastern Oklahoma State University hosted the National Intercollegiate Flying Association’s (NIFA) Region IV SAFECON Oct. 16-20.
The SE Flight Team finished third in the SAFECON Championship, trailing only LeTourneau University and Oklahoma State University. The first and second place teams receive automatic bids to the national competition in May in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
However, Southeastern is not out of the running – the SE Flight Team will learn if it’s strong third place finish is enough for an invitation to the nationals by the end of the year.
Southeastern also finished second in flying events and third in ground events. A number of SE team members earned top 10 finishes to bolster the overall team effort.
“I am very proud of our team’s progress, as we showed great improvement over last year,’’ said Kyle Thomas, Chief Flight Instructor and Flight Operations Manager at the SE Aviation Sciences Institute. “We were only 19 points behind the second place team. And the weather was beautiful and it was a great week of competition.’’
Following are the results from the SAFECON competition hosted by Southeastern, including individual results for SE flight team members:
