      Evan Conley and Andres Hidalgo placed 6th out of 31 teams in the CRM (Crew Resource Management) competition; in a multi-engine airplane in IFR conditions with a captain, co-pilot and a flight attendant

o      Mercer placed ahead of many 4-year schools; this event emulated working for the airlines – interacting with people and problem-solving in a Beechcraft Barron at a speed of 180 mph

      Personal Tour of Airnet Systems; Lear Jet 31’s and Cessna Caravans – our students were asked for resumes

      Luis Nazario was given a personal tour of the air traffic control tower at Rickenbacker International Airport

      In a Safety Interview with American Airlines representatives the comment was made that “of the participating two year schools, Mercer’s flight team stands out and you really have your stuff together”

      Attended a Pilot Seminar and Aviation Industry Reception; again our students were asked for resumes and career opportunities were discussed

      NetJet Company, Southwest Airlines, Air Wisconsin, Express Jet, Airline Pilots Association, Delta Airlines; networked with these company representatives who also were impressed and requested resumes

      MCCC’s Flight Team came back with safety acknowledgements, career opportunities, and made a good impression on their enhanced flying skills

      Mercer County Community College placed 3rd in the Top Two Year School’s category; just 1 point behind the 2nd place team.
