As we all know, the cost of flight training is quite high. As a flight student in Oklahoma State University, receiving the 2017 AAAE Foundation scholarship has been a great blessing. This far, the scholarship has been helping me complete my Private Pilot License and will also help me begin my Instrument Rating once I complete my Private Training. The scholarship has also provided great financial support towards my overall cost of tuition. More importantly, the generosity of the Foundation has helped me get a step closer towards achieving my dream career of becoming an airline pilot. I am very thankful for this scholarship and for the investment that the American Association of Airport Executives Foundation has made in me. Words cannot fully express how grateful I am to receive this prestigious scholarship. This is a great honor that I will forever be grateful for. The scholarship has made a true difference in my undergraduate career. Again, thank you for your generosity, and may God continue to bless the Foundation.
