New Aviation Ground School Scholarship Available

The Spaatz Association is proud to announce a new scholarship program designed to promote aviation ground school training in 2014.

In conjunction with Judge Robert T.S. Colby, the United States Sea Cadets, and the Association of Naval Aviation, TSA will sponsor 10 cadets to attend the annual Aviation Ground School program to be held at the Riverside Military Academy, Gainesville, GA, from 27 July to 2 August. All entrance fees, lodging, food, and materials are covered by the Association. Cadets are only responsible for transportation to and from the event.

This program, now in its 43rd year, provides sport pilot ground school training to cadets, teachers, students, and other aspiring aviators.

The scholarship is open to cadets who:

  • Are at least 15 years old,
  • Have completed Phase IV of the Cadet Program (earned the Eaker/Spaatz Award), and
  • Have maintained at least a 3.0 GPA (normalized on a 4.0 scale) in school.

To apply for the scholarship, download an application and submit it via the TSA Aviation Ground School webpage not later than MIDNIGHT, 7 June.
