The Flying Tomahawks, ULM's competition flight team, is hosting
the Region IV National Intercollegiate Flying Association's (NIFA)
Annual SAFECON (safety convention) on October 22-25. An awards
banquet will end the event on Saturday.
This is the first time in over 10 years that ULM has hosted the
competition. Universities in Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas,
and Texas compete every year and the top teams are invited to
attend the National Competition. There will be 5-6 teams consisting
of approximately 150 people in attendance.
The flying events will be held at the Monroe Regional Airport
and some of the ground events will be held on campus in the Airway
Science Building. For more information call Paul Karlowitz at
