This years event was dominated by strong teams from The University of Dayton, and Mississippi State University.

The overall winners were a team from UD, Andrew Killian, Luke Duncan and Mauricio Hernandez with their hybrid wing body aerial firefighter, designed to fill the gap between the larger firefighters on the market and the massive 747 Supertanker. Their design (aptly named Pelican) is capable of carrying 16000 gallons of water. The team will receive $800 from Merlin Flight Simulation Group.

Second was MSU with 'Skywalker', their twin engine turboprop executive aircraft designed by Dillon Williams, Nick Areng, Cole Dickerson, Cameron Jackson, Claire King, Joel Sheffield, Alex Ward, Jesse Watkins and Dillon Williams.
