Flying Team : About

MISSION

The mission of the West Point Aviation Club (WPAC) is to provide cadets leader and military skills development opportunities through the experiences of developing, executing, assessing, and continually improving a Flying Team training program. The specific goal of the WPAC is to win regional and national intercollegiate flying competitions (hosted by the National Intercollegiate Flying Association, www.nifa.us).

The team greatly appreciates the generous donations of our supporters. If you’d like to support the West Point Aviation Club, contact our team officer-in-charge, Lt. Col. Ron Whittle, at ronald.whittle@usma.edu.
