Another Aviation Event Has To Reconfigure Operations

Based on recent info, we have learned that over the last few months, the National Intercollegiate Flying Association Council has met several times to discuss the 2021 National SAFECON.

NIFA reports that, “In an effort to make the best decision possible for the organization and its membership, data was collected from multiple school and volunteer surveys. In addition, the Council reviewed and discussed CDC guidelines and host location restrictions. As many of you are aware, the situation is dynamic; the data and responses are constantly changing.”

After an in-depth review, the NIFA Council reports that it has decided to host SAFECON 2021 as a remote competition.

“This was not an easy decision, as we all desired the opportunity to host a normal, in-person SAFECON. The preparations that go into hosting a SAFECON, additional logistics necessary to account for pandemic precautions, and the notice requested by teams, meant that a decision had to be made at this time.”

SAFECON 2021 will be comprised of:

Aircraft Recognition Simulated Comprehensive Aircraft Navigation (SCAN) Computer Accuracy CFI Event Coach of the Year Award Loening Trophy Men’s and Women’s Achievement Awards

NIFA reports that it is working diligently to also provide the following events. Within one week, they will announce the final status of:

Ground Trainer Preflight Inspection

SAFECON 2021 will be held May 17-22, 2021. More information will be provided shortly on how events will be administered and when the annual business meeting will be held.
