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.
This year, EAA 74's Ray Aviation Scholarship candidate is Emily Pfleger. The 17 year-old student is pursuing her basic training with a long-term goal to fly military fighters pilot and later to become a corporate pilot.
