DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – In the most important annual contest for college aviators – the Safety and Flight Evaluation Conference (SAFECON) competition – Embry-Riddle’s Prescott, Ariz. and Daytona Beach Fla. flight teams placed third and seventh respectively, excelling in many of the nearly two dozen individual flight and ground events. SAFECON, presented by the National Intercollegiate Flying Association (NIFA), included 350+ contestants from 30 elite collegiate flight teams from across the country. These students participated in 23 different flight and ground events, including ground-based activities and flying tests for individuals and teams. Contestants were judged on their expertise in flight planning, simulator flights, navigation, interviewing, preflighting, precision landing contests, power-off landings and other aviation-related challenges. The 2019 SAFECON was hosted by the University of Wisconsin and held at the Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport (JVL).
