NDPI is a student led effort intended to
 bring aviation back to the University of
 Notre Dame.
Our mission is to teach the science of
 flight, inspire the art, and produce
 aviation candidates for the military and
 civilian communities.
Mutual support network for both student
 pilots learning to fly and licensed pilots
