Business Aviation Scholarships Offered
While the airlines have seen their share of tumult in recent years, corporate and business aviation has seen steady growth. Now, Women in Corporate Aviation (WCA) is hoping to steer more young pilots and support personnel in their direction through sponsorship of several scholarships. The scholarships are open to men and women. "Applicants should be actively working toward their goal and show financial need," says a news release issued by the group. The scholarships will be awarded at the National Business Aviation Association's convention in Orlando next October. Deadline for applications is June 30. Aircraft Technical Publishers (ATP) and King's School of Aeronautics are sponsoring a scholarship package to an A&P student pursuing a career in corporate or business aviation worth $1,357, WCA is teaming up with Cessna for a commercial pilot scholarship worth $1,300 and WCA is offering $1,000 to someone to further their studies in any aspect of corporate flying.
