AOPA Announces Scholarship Winners

The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) has announced the 80 high school students and 20 teachers who have won scholarships of $10,000 each in the 2019 You Can Fly High School Flight Training Scholarship program.

   The scholarships, a benefit of AOPA membership, are a component of the AOPA You Can Fly program, a set of initiatives working toward getting and keeping more pilots flying by introducing youth to aviation, improving the flight training experience, supporting flying clubs, and helping lapsed pilots return to the cockpit. Scholarship recipients will be able to use the money for direct flight training expenses to pursue a primary pilot certificate. They must also complete a flight training milestone, achieving either solo or earning a primary pilot certificate, within one year of receiving a scholarship.
