LEARN TO FLY WITH NAHA!
If you are between 15 and 21 years old and dream of flying, the National Aviation Heritage Alliance can get you started!
NAHA has just established a scholarship program that will provide $1,500 worth of flying lessons towards earning a Private Pilot or Light Sport Pilot’s Certificate. That’s enough for the average person to learn to fly solo!
The name of the scholarship is the Mitchel Cary/Donald Gum Memorial Aviation Scholarship. It is named in honor of two pilots who lost their lives in 2011 in the commemoration of the Wright brothers’ invention of aviation. The partner organizations in NAHA and the families of Mitch and Don believe that this is a good way to pass their love of flying on to a new pilot.
It is a competitive scholarship. Only one will be awarded this year (but we plan to add more next year).
To be eligible, you must:
- Be between 15 and 21 years old.
- Live or go to school in one of the following Ohio counties: Auglaize, Champaign, Clark, Greene, Miami, Montgomery, Shelby, or Warren
- Be able to pass an FAA third-class medical exam or have a valid Ohio driver’s license
- Submit an application with supporting documents to NAHA
All of the details of what you need to submit the application are on the form itself. The application can be downloaded as a PDF file by clicking here.
Your application has to be submitted by November 21, 2013, to the Executive Director of the National Aviation Heritage Alliance. If you have questions, contact Mr. Tony Sculimbrene at 937.443.0165.
