Flight Team Sponsor

The OSU flight team is incredibly fortunate and grateful to LIFT Aviation for entering into a long-term sponsorship with them. Additionally, they are helping finance their trip to the 2023 NIFA SAFECON event from May 8-13.


The flight team entered into their first NIFA meet in 1951. Since then we have gone on to win a multitude of awards. The flight team has won the Bendix Trophy nine times and the Grover Loening Trophy twenty-one times, nearly three times as many as the next closest school. In regional competitions, the Flying Aggies have placed in all but two meets. On eight occasions a Flying Aggie has been selected as the nation’s Outstanding Intercollegiate Male, and six female Aggies have been named the nation’s Outstanding Intercollegiate Female. Two Flying Aggies have also received the Women’s Achievement Award for thier significant contribution to aviation.
