SIU Aviation and the Flying Salukis

Mention the phrase “Flying Salukis” and there can be only one image.

As a part of Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s nationally recognized aviation program, the 15- to 18-member squad plays an important role in highlighting both the aviation program and the university’s accomplishments.

The team has nine National Intercollegiate Flying Association (NIFA) titles dating back to 1977. Since 2011, when the Flying Salukis surprised many competitors by winning a then-seventh national championship, the team has nine straight top 3 national finishes. That includes championships in 2014 and 2015 and second-place showings in 2016 and earlier this year.
