The Jindabyne Aero Club (JAC) is pleased to announce a $1500 scholarship for 2016 for a local student who has an interest in aviation and wishes to pursue flying as a possible career option. The scholarship will allow a student to gain approximately 7 hours of flying training, provide him/her with a training manual and cover association membership fees. The cost of further flight training to Pilot Certificate level would need to be covered by the student's personal resources. However, every year Recreational Aviation Australia offers several GYFTS (Give Youth Flight Training Support) scholarships and successful applicants would be further assisted to continue their training to Pilot Certificate level.
The JAC scholarship is available to students 15 - 18 years of age. The aim is to sponsor students who have decided on a career in aviation and would derive benefit from the scholarship as per the guidelines in the application.
