MSU Denver recently was awarded the Loening Trophy. The Loening Trophy is presented annually to the most outstanding all around collegiate aviation/aerospace program in the nation. The Loening Trophy is the rarest and oldest of all collegiate aviation awards. The pure silver Tiffany designed trophy was commissioned and first awarded in 1929 when aviation pioneer and inventor, Dr. Grover Loening, saw a need to annually recognize the most outstanding achievements of college aviation programs. Dr. Loening (first aeronautical engineer for the Wright Brothers), asked his colleagues, Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, and Navy Commander John Towers to assist him in judging the first competition.
