The Central Texas College aviation team captured the National Intercollegiate Flying Association Region IV Safety and Flight Evaluation Conference (SAFECON) championship last month at Texas State Technical College in Waco. CTC captured first place in the overall team flying events and second place in the ground events to win the regional championship. CTC now qualifies for the national SAFECON flying competition to be held at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, May 6-11.
The SAFECON competition tests a broad variety of aviation skills, both on the ground and in the air, including short-field landings, power-off landings and navigation — all demanding tests of piloting skills. Ground events include tests measuring a pilot’s knowledge of regulations, weather and their ability to do aviation math without electronic aids. CTC scored a total of 481 points to win the flight events competition over second place Le Tourneau University (272 points) and TSTC (225 points). CTC took second in the ground events with 215 points.
