The 2021 EAA Chapter 406 Ray Foundation Aviation Scholarship recipient is Morgan Thomas.
Morgan has had his head in the clouds for as long has he can remember. Our own Doug Haughton will continue to mentor Morgan as he progresses through his private pilot certificate journey. Of course, all chapter members are mentors and the chapter collectively is excited and supportive of Morgan's immersion into the world of aviation.

EAA Chapter 406, Bremerton Pilots Association and Avian Flight Center have awarded a flight training scholarship to Julia Fisher
Julia is 17 and is an incoming senior at Covenant High School in Tacoma. There, she is involved in drama, tutoring outreach, and as an officer in Honor Society. When she can get away from school, she often goes flying with her family. She has been flying in her family's Cessna Cardinal since before she could walk. Some of her favorite memories include airplane camping in Idaho and Montana and visiting fly ins such as the Arlington Fly In. When she isn't flying, she enjoys reading, arts and crafts, and playing board games.
We welcome Julia as a member of EAA Chapter 406 and are excited as she begins her flight training, continuing her families aviation traditions.
UPDATE Summer 2021: Julia has completed her flight training and is now pursuing an engineering degree at an Oregon university.
