Scholarship Awardee Morgan Guarneri, now flying helicopters, started basic Pilot Training with a Fred Kacena Scholarship from EAA240.
Morgan writes “There is no way I could have done it though, without EAA Chapter 240 helping me get my foot in the door of the flying world. The scholarship I was awarded gave me a jump start on my training and allowed me to fall in love even more with flying.”
See Morgan’s recent letter of appreciation here, received at the Chapter recently. We offer our congratulations to Morgan as she continues to accomplish her aviation dream! Morgan is one of several Scholarship awardees who have gone on to success and to careers in aviation. We congratulate them all.
Through our EAA240 Young Eagles program and other events we look to get more youngsters familiar with and interested in aviation. This is critical if GA is to continue and to expand, and to seed the aviation industries of the country and the world.
The Fred Kacena Flight Training Scholarships are our best opportunity to do our part in increasing the number of pilots.
The Chapter plans to offer two Flight Training Scholarship this year to students who apply, and meet the criteria for the awards. The criteria and application form are available at the Chapter web site here. Each Scholarship is valued at $2,000 and is generated by your membership fee’s and our annual fund raising, these provide a great kick-start to flying, aviation careers, pilot certifications, plane ownership and more.
You may know of relatives, friends or colleagues who have students already with an interest in aviation. You may know some smart, sharp and motivated kids who may be interested. Please bring this Scholarship opportunity to their attention and prompt them to check the requirements detailed in the application form, and to apply. The closing date is April 30th.
Your efforts here could result in new pilot or career in aviation, and that would be great!
More information, including the application form, can be found here and on our web site.
