Diamond Aircraft Industries will expand its current international Research & Development program and other initiatives working with Embry-Riddle students, staff and faculty from the university’s engineering and aviation colleges as well as its Eagle Flight Research Center.
The Embry-Riddle teams will compete against 45 other teams from around the world, including 12 from other universities. The four-day transcontinental competition will test the full range of piloting skills.
The Prescott team came in first and the Daytona Beach team took fourth place at the annual Safety and Flight Evaluation Conference national competition sponsored by the National Intercollegiate Flying Association.
