Ohio State Flight Team SAFECON 2019 & ADS-B

Although our giving page is no longer active, you can still donate. If you would like to provide any additional support to our project, please do so here. 


The Ohio State University Flight Team looks forward to once again represent our great university as we have qualified for NIFA National SAFECON 2019, hosted by the University of Wisconsin. Our team has been building off our momentum at Region III SAFECON in October and have been working hard at practice as we prepare to take a national championship. In May, the team and both Cessna 150's will travel from Columbus to Janesville, WI for a week of competition among collegiate aviation's best schools.

This year, we are raising $20,000 to support the team in the below initiatives:


1. Travel to SAFECON 2019

We are traveling a full team and three airplanes to Wisconsin. Expenses include practice flight hours, travel flight time, lodging, competition fees, and competition flight costs.

2. Aircraft Equipment Upgrades

The FAA's mandate to have all aircraft equipped with next-gen ADS-B technology by January 1, 2020. To comply with this, both N500SU and N510SU will need state of the art ADS-B and GPS equipped transponder replacements.

Thank you for your continued support of the Ohio State Flight Team. We intend to do our part and carry on the tradition of excellence set by our alumni and keep Ohio State Aviation at the top of the collegiate scale.
