Flight Expo, Inc. is currently taking applications for our 2023 Private Pilot's License Scholarship!
Obtaining your Private Pilot’s License (PPL) is your first step to becoming a
professional pilot. Boeing predicts that aviation will need more than 600,000 new pilots and about the same number of technicians by 2026 to meet returning demand for air travel post-Covid. If you choose to continue your education past the PPL, exciting career opportunities such as commercial pilots, copilots, and flight engineers follow.
This scholarship aims to support individuals who are pursuing their Private Pilot’s License through Flight Expo’s Flying Club.
To apply, submit your FIRST & LAST NAME, PHONE NUMBER, EMAIL ADDRESS, and a PERSONAL STATEMENT to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 12th, 2023. Winners will be announced on May 20th , 2023.
