AOPA Adds Fourth Flight Training Scholarship

This is from General Aviation News.


The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association has added the Jimmie Allen Flying Club Flight Training Scholarship as the fourth award to its Flight Training Scholarship Program. The new scholarship, donated by AOPA member Sarah Wilson who pilots the 1929 Jimmie Allen Stearman Speedmail, will award $5,000 to a student pilot working towards an initial sport, recreational, or private pilot certificate.

Scholarship recipients will be chosen on merit, ability to set goals and a demonstrated commitment to flight training. To qualify for a scholarship, applicants must be a U.S. citizen at least 16 years old and hold a student pilot certificate but have not yet passed the practical test. Complete eligibility requirements are available online. Applications must be received by Aug. 24.

The scholarships will be awarded at the AOPA Aviation Summit in Palm Springs, California, Oct. 11-13. The winners will be notified prior to Summit and do not need to be present to accept the award.
