Omaha – In March 2018, five members of UNO’s chapter of Alpha Eta Rho were offered the opportunity to travel to Duluth, Minnesota, to visit the Cirrus Aircraft headquarters.
The students were graciously given a private tour of the company’s aircraft manufacturing facilities, where the students were able to witness the manufacturing process of Cirrus’s SR20, SR22, and their latest Cirrus Vision Jet.
Keaton Stengel, UNO’s chapter president, said “We were all very thankful to have had the opportunity to see and learn more about Cirrus. Aside from the impressive facilities, the Cirrus staff were all very kind and accommodating. All in all we couldn’t have been more satisfied with the trip.”
This is a great opportunity for our students to network and interact with industry."

Scott Vlasek, faculty advisor for the chapter said, “This is a great opportunity for our students to network and interact with industry.
