During yesterday’s session of the Ohio House of Representatives, State Representative Kristina Daley Roegner (R-Hudson) presented the Kent State University Precision Flight Team with a House resolution for winning the 2010 Loening Trophy.
The team won the award at the National Intercollegiate Flying Association’s 2010 Safety and Flight Evaluation Conference competition in Terra Haute, Indiana. More than 450 students from 29 colleges and universities from across the country competed in 13 different flying and non-flying events.
“I am so proud of the tremendous accomplishment of the KSU precision flight team,” Roegner said. “The Loening Trophy is a very competitive, national award. To our Flight Team, I send wishes of “clear skies and tailwinds”!”
The Loening Trophy represents superb achievement in aeronautical skills and represents the current benchmark for an overall outstanding collegiate aviation program. Award selection is based on such factors as academics, community involvement, aviation skills, a comprehensive safety program, and professionalism.
