With all the focus on regional competitions and SAFECON 2015, it is important to remember that bids to host SAFECON 2016 are still being accepted. (Bidding is now closed.)
Hosting a SAFECON is an excellent opportunity for a school, building relationships with the airport and community (even if facilities requirements dictate they host the competition at another airport), providing exposure for the aviation education program, and creating contacts in the industry. Preparing for the event builds leadership and organizational skills among the student officers. And, there can be a financial incentive for the school and FBO.
Bids to host SAFECON 2016
are were accepted through the end of the business day on 17 November 2014.
