CBU Flying Lancers Compete In Regional Event

Riverside, Calif. (Nov. 11, 2015) – Twenty aviation science students from California Baptist University took to the skies of La Verne to compete in the National Intercollegiate Flying Association Region II competition on Nov. 2-6. This was the second year the Flying Lancers competed in this event.

The students participated in numerous ground and flight competitive events such as Power-Off Landing, Navigation, Message Drop, Aircraft Preflight Inspection and Crew Resource Management.

Flying Lancers Phil Marlin, dropmaster and Cole Lanphere, pilot, placed third in the Message Drop competition; and Hannah Guajardo, pilot flying, and Lacey Schimming, pilot not flying, finished fifth place in the Crew Resource Management competition.

"We are proud of the Flying Lancers' efforts," said Dr. Daniel Prather, chair of the Department of Aviation Science. "These students always inspire their competitors during the competition, and as we look forward to the 2016 competition, we'll learn from our experience and set our sights even higher."
