The Eagles are at it again. The Eagles Flight Team have taken home their 36th Regional Championship. The competition was held in Herlong Recreational Airport (KHEG) in Jacksonville, and the event was hosted by Jacksonville University. The team have come up with great results to their hard work and dedication since our 4th place finish in the 2018 SAFECON National Competition. We brought a total of 19, 6 of which have never competed before and 4 ground crews that consisted of new tryouts of the Fall 2018 intake. Special Congratulations to the ground event coaches who placed first in their respective events, and Dakota Buderus, who came up with the team as a ground and had to fill in for the COMPACC event last minute and still placed top 10 in the event.

Our hard work does not stop, as the 2019 SAFECON National Competition is just around the corner.
