The Salukis won the 2015 National Intercollegiate Flying Association championship last week at the Ohio State University Airport in Columbus, Ohio.

The University of North Dakota finished second, with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Prescott coming in third.

This is the second national championship in a row for the Flying Salukis and the third in the past five years.

A public reception to honor the team will be held Wednesday at Noon in the Transportation Education Center's Multipurpose Room at the Southern Illinois Airport.
