Josh Milton, a 17 year old, Year 11 student at the Snowy Mountains Grammar School in Jindabyne is the worthy recipient of the Jindabyne Aero Club's 2016 flight training scholarship. Josh was awarded this generous scholarship ($1500) at the JAC Dinner and Auction evening held at Rydges Horizons on Saturday 03 September.
Josh has already commenced his flight training with Alpine Aviation Australia, based at the Jindabyne Randall Community Aerodrome, and is progressing well towards his first solo. He takes time out during his holidays to find employment to help pay for his flying lessons. The JAC scholarship has come as a very welcome surprise and he is very appreciative of the JAC's generosity and financial assistance.
His flight instructor, Martin Hughes, is also pleased with Josh's success in gaining the scholarship as he believes that Josh has the "right stuff" to become a good pilot and pursue his desire for a career in aviation. Alpine Aviation Australia is also grateful to the Jindabyne Aero Club for its on-going support and encouragement of local youth in aviation activities and its commitment to community engagement.
