SmartSky - Finally WifI that Wows

LeanIntoAviation (3)Each month, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) writes about new scholarships in aviation and highlights success stories of past scholarship winners.


In this month’s update, AOPA social media/newsletters editor Benet Wilson reports that Girls With Wings has opened up the application process for three scholarships that it will award in 2014.

“The $2,500 Private Pilot Scholarship will help defray the cost of flight training lessons for those who have soloed but have not completed their private pilot certificate. The $500 Dreams Take Flight Scholarship helps pay for introductory flight training to encourage achievement of a stated goal, whether in aviation or in another field of study. And the new $1,000 Advanced Rating Scholarship helps defray the cost of pursuing an advanced rating or certificate, including an instrument rating, commercial pilot certificate, flight instructor certificate, instrument flight instructor certificate, multiengine rating or multiengine flight instructor certificate,” reports Wilson.
