Through the generous support of the Ray Foundation, EAA provides up to $10,000 to deserving youths for their flight training expenses, totaling nearly $1,200,000 in scholarships annually.
The program is supported by more than 100 EAA chapters, and supports close to 120 scholars.
Each year, our chapter supports one scholar, between the ages of 16 and 19, in the form funding and mentorship to help him or her earn their pilot certificate.
We are proud to announce Chapter Member Amanda Konior has been awarded a Ray Aviation Scholarship and has accumulated approximately 10 hours
of flight instruction on her path towards her Private Pilot Certificate! She has also completed the Private Pilot Ground School Course available to all Chapter
members for no cost other than the FAA publication "Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge" publication # FAA-H-8083-25B, (which is available from the FAA
website in PDF form or ASA in printed form) and a chart plotter plus E6-B flight computer. The Instructor provides expired local area Sectional Charts.
