The OSU Flying Aggies are an aviation interest organization. As the second-oldest club on campus today, our goal is to foster an environment for the community, encourage interest in aviation, provide safe and economical flying for our members, and to advance the knowledge of membership in aeronautical and related subjects. The Flying Aggies are also home to the competitive NIFA Flight Team, who competes locally and nationally. Known for their orange flight suits and orange airplane, the Flight Team has won 9 National Championships and received the most prestigious award in aviation, the Loening Trophy, 21 times.
The OSU Flying Aggies Flight Team, Fall 2022
The Flying Aggies' club aircraft, N600SU, is a 1969 Cessna 150K affectionately known as "Sixty" (or "Sixty OSU" by many alumni). From Flight Team competitions across the country to local fly-ins, Sixty has been an unforgettable part of Flying Aggies history since her acquisition.
While we all know Sixty is priceless, we also know that she's pretty expensive. With an engine overhaul on the horizon and 100-Hour inspections every few months, our projected maintenance costs for 2023 are over $15,000. We need help from donors like you to keep our plane in the air, and to make sure that Aggies for years to come are able to make memories together in N600SU.
Part of our mission is to provide safe and economical flying for our members, and N600SU is a huge part of that. Donate $60 to help us keep N600SU up and running!
The Flying Aggies Flight Team has won one of the most prestigious awards in collegiate aviation, the Loening Trophy, 21 times. The Flight Team has also won 9 National Championships! We have earned countless other awards throughout the years, but these 30 are the most impressive!
Our goal as The Flying Aggies is to foster community, encourage interest in aviation, and provide safe and economical flying for our members. We've grown so much since our founding in 1948, and we are so excited for what the future holds! Help us celebrate our 75th anniversary next year by donating at this level.
The Flying Aggies were founded in the Fall of 1948, making us the second oldest organization on campus! One 100-Hour inspection on N600SU costs almost $2,000. Our members are flying now more than ever, and, as a result, we have to pay for 100-Hour inspections more frequently!
The recommended engine overhaul time for Sixty is coming up quick! Help us pay for a new engine by donating at this level.
