Please consider the affect of your donation as seen in the following packages below.
Each talented team member specializes in more than one event. These events range from complex flight planning to precision landings and cross-country flying, testing each member’s abilities that allow them to grow. In order to compete, each individual must pay an entrance fee. A donation in this category pays for one member’s entry fee to compete in the national competition.
Safety is at the forefront of everything we do. Each team member is expected to wear safety equipment, follow procedures, exhibit best practices and exercise good judgement both in the air and on the ground. A donation in this category pays for new safety vests, equipment, and training from industry professionals to promote safe practices.
The San Jose State University Flight Team has been completely student-led and funded since its inception over 50 years ago. As the only student-led flying team in the west, our ability to compete as a team in competitions hosted by the NIFA, depends heavily on our supporters. A donation in this category pays for our team’s entrance fee, transportation, and lodging in the national competition while continuing our tradition of representing the best school in the west.
