About the Falcon Flight Team

The Falcon Flight Team is a group of highly motivated college students and staff who love aviation. Our membership is open to all students in all majors at BGSU; although, most of our members are pursuing the Flight Technologies & Operations specialization. Our team competes in the National Intercollegiate Flying Association's (NIFA) Region III alongside Western Michigan University, Ohio State University, Kent State University, and Ohio University. By competing in NIFA, we sharpen our aviation knowledge, navigation skills, and flying abilities. The Falcon Flight Team prides itself on maintaining a safe aviation environment in all aspects of our operation. In our team history, we have earned the safety award in NIFA Region III six times. 

What is NIFA? 

NIFA stands for National Intercollegiate Flying Association and dates back to the first competition in 1927. NIFA's deep roots have expanded to 45 teams across the contiguous United States, competing in 10 regions. NIFA offers multiple events on the ground and in the air. Competition flying events include Power-On/ Power-Off Landings, Unlimited Navigation, Message Drop, CRM/ LOFT, IFR Precision Flight, and IFR simulated flight. Ground events are Simulated Comprehensive Aircraft Navigation, Computer Accuracy (E6B), Aircraft Recognition, Ground Trainer, and Aircraft Preflight. 


The Falcon Flight Team is proud to be invited to National Competition 2024 (SAFECON). The team hasn't competed at nationals since 1997. Efforts from our team, both past and present, have propelled us into a slot for this year's SAFECON. Our team will compete May 13 -18 in Janesville, Wisconsin.
