KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's precision flight team, the Sky Broncos, heads to Ohio for the National Intercollegiate Flying Association's Region III competition.

The 13-member team will compete in NIFA's Safety and Evaluation Conference, scheduled for this region at Ohio University Monday through Thursday, Oct. 24-28. Last year's team finished second at regionals to advance to the national competition where WMU aviators placed fourth, competing against teams from 30 colleges and universities around the country.

The Sky Broncos are led this year by Head Coach Kyle Johnson, a June 2009 graduate from Arnold, Mo.; Assistant Coach Thomas Grossman, the college's chief flight instructor; and faculty advisor Ryan Seiler, Air Traffic Collegiate Training Initiative program coordinator.
