SAFECON 2021 Meeting Schedule

SAFECON 2021 will kick off Monday, May 17 with the General Contestant Briefing. In addition to individual meetings for various individual contests held online, the main events meeting schedule is as follows below.

We ask that you submit the name and email address of one representative from your team for each of the following: the General Contestant Briefing, the Annual Business Meeting, and the Captain’s meeting, so that we can conduct an orderly meeting that isn’t too crowded. This person would speak on behalf of the team. Other attendees will still be able to ask questions via the Zoom meeting Q&A only, if desired. Everyone is invited to watch via either Zoom or YouTube.

NOTE: Please email flight@nifa.aero with the name and email address of a representative for each event (General Contestant Briefing, Annual Business Meeting, Captain’s Meeting) if you wish to be represented.
