Sky Broncos Back in Flight

Posted on Monday, October 22, 2012

The Sky Broncos are back in the air. WMU's Precision Flight Team took third place in the National Intercollegiate Flying Association Region III Competition—which means they will compete with the best collegiate flight teams in the nation next spring.

The National competition will be held in May, 2013, at Ohio State University. This will give the team, made up of mostly new pilots, plenty of time to prepare. Last year's team is pictured.

The 12-member WMU team competed in NIFA's Safety and Evaluation Conference and took second place in both ground events and third place in flight events—finishing third overall.
