       As the flight vendor for Jacksonville University and Broward College, Aerosim Flight Academy salutes the
       accomplishments and performances of their flight teams in the Southeast Regional Flying Competition.

       The Jacksonville University (JU) Flight Team made school history by finishing second place overall at the
       Region IX National Intercollegiate Flying Association’s (NIFA) Safety and Flight Evaluation Conference
       (SAFECON). As the flight vendor for Jacksonville University and Broward College, Aerosim Flight
       Academy in Sanford, Florida, provides instructors to JU and Broward student pilots as well as its aircraft,
       the Cirrus SR20.

        For the ninth year in a row, Jacksonville University earns a bid to the National SAFECON which will be
       held this May 2011, at Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. JU will compete against the top 30 teams
       in the nation. Jacksonville University’s second place finish in the ground and flight events elevates the
       team in collegiate aviation’s Southeast Region. Broward College took fifth place in the competition In
       addition to team awards, JU’s own Captains’ Sarah Morris and Michael Todd ranked 2nd and 3rd TOP
       PILOTS in the region. JU and Aerosim Flight Academy were equally honored when Morris ranked
       ALL-AROUND TOP FEMALE contestant, earning the most points among women in the entire

       The JU team was led by advisors Prof. Jeff Harrison, Dr. Rhett Yates, and coached by Brent Knoblauch.
       Team captain Michael Todd and Co-captain Sarah Morris led the team of 15 members. Broward College
       was the top scoring 2-year college with Captain Jay Bisher leading a team of 15.

        “The team’s success is the result of the hard work and dedication of team advisors and members,” said
       Juan Merkt, director of JU’s Davis Aviation Center in the Davis College of Business. “Their success also
       speaks volumes for the quality of the flight training that students receive at JU through Aerosim Flight
       Academy. The JU Team is indebted to its sponsors Michael McKenny, Ed Dulik, the Jacksonville
       University Aviation Advisory Board, and Aerosim Flight Academy. This feat would not have been
       possible without their continued generous support.”

        Jacksonville University’s Davis Aviation Center has been preparing students for business careers in the
       aviation industry for more than 25 years. In 1996, Jacksonville University established a one-of-a-kind
       training partnership with an airline’s training center, Aerosim Flight Academy (formerly Delta Connection
       Academy), to educate and train future airline pilots. For over 30 years, Broward College has offered the
       Professional Pilot Technology Program as one of its aviation curriculum within the Broward College
       Aviation Institute. Aerosim Flight Academy has served as its flight vendor for more than 10 years.
