If you are a top aeronautical science student, you could be a member of LETU’s “Sting” Precision Flight Team. This group of students competes against students from other college aviation programs in the National Intercollegiate Flying Association (NIFA) competitions.
While many of the competition events involve flying or pilot skills, several of the competition events are open to students who are not pursuing flight training.
The National Intercollegiate Flying Association is a group of different universities, colleges and clubs all over the United States. They are advancing aviation education and safety while providing competition on the collegiate level. NIFA is sponsored by over thirty aviation companies nationwide. It’s great experience if you are thinking about a career in the aviation industry.
