Each year, our chapter provides funding and mentorship for local youth to earn a private pilot license - $10,000 (ages 15-19) or private pilot- glider license - $5,000 (ages 16-19). In 2020, we provided funds for one of our high school members who, in December, 2021 passed his checkride and earned his private pilots license - overcoming Covid flying restrictions and weather challenges!
Currently, we have two Ray Scholars who are training towards earning their private pilot - glider certificates.
Finally, our Chapter has recently been awarded another Ray Scholarship for powered flight training ($10,000). We will have more information on our scholar selection process and timeline soon...
