Sabre Flight Drill Team

Sabre Flight Drill Team

The Sabre Flight Drill Team (SFDT) was formally established at Texas Tech University in 1961 as a part of the U.S. Air Force R.O.T.C. detachment. The team mascot is the North American F-86A Sabre Jet, flown in the Korean War. Throughout the years, SFDT has done exceptionally well competing in drill competitions. The team is composed of freshman through senior cadets. Sabre Flight's goal is to produce competent leaders/followers through precision drill through the use of the U.S. Cavalry Sabre, M-1 Rifle, and knowledge of military customs and courtesies. The team is the U.S. Air Force R.O.T.C. and Texas Tech University representative for drill competitions, parades, color guards, Sabre arches, and many other special ceremonies and events.
