For the first time ever in National Intercollegiate Flying Association (NIFA) SAFECON Competition history, a team has won the national championship three years in a row.
The victorious Golden Eagles will be returning to the ERAU flightline at noon (approximately) on Tuesday. There will be a celebration of their arrival, and the public is invited to join in.
Be aware, that due to weather and winds, the arrival time could vary plus or minus an hour.
"Their third consecutive national championship is the first time this has occurred in competition history and marks the 12th national championship brought home to Prescott, AZ," ERAU Chancellor Dr. Frank Ayers explained.
