I am a junior at Florida Institute of Technology, majoring in Aeronautical Science with Flight. It has been an honor to have received the AAAE Foundation Flight Training Scholarship. It has greatly alleviated some of the financial burdens of flight training off not only me but also my parents. While I only just started commercial training, I can already attest to the fact that this scholarship will help me go the distance and get me even closer to reaching my goal of becoming a pilot. I could not be more grateful to have received this scholarship.
