Welcome to the Precision Flight Team website.
2007 End of Season
Well, the 2006-2007 NIFA season has come to close. It has been a great year for the SJSU Precision Flight Team with a lot of new experiences been learned. The team can be excited that we are now ranked 14th in the Nation and have been to back-to-back SAFECON Competitions. With only 2 returning members this year the brand new team worked well together to place so high at Nationals. Next year, however will be a different story. The team will be a core group from this year and they will be even stronger and hungrier to prove themselves at both Regionals and Nationals. So watch out NIFA, watch out SJSU, and watch out past members for what could be our strongest team yet to show the nation what the SJSU Precision Flight Team has to offer……
2007 Team Update
With a mostly new team, we are excited to enter the 2007 season and do our best as we lead the new members through their first PCIFA experience and build up a strong base for next season. As the practice sessions ramp up in anticipation for the competition in February, our spirits are high and we may yet pack a formidable wallop.
