Ohio University's Flying Bobcats team of student aviators from the Fritz J. and Dolores H. Russ College of Engineering and Technology earned a top safety award for the second year in a row at the 2013 NIFA National SAFECON aviation competition May 5-11 in Columbus, Ohio, at Ohio State University's KOSU airport.
