2. Scholarships: Dear to Sue’s heart is our mission to promote women in aviation. Discussion was centered on what type of scholarship is most beneficial to the pilot community and to the individual student pilot. It was voted on and motion passed to sponsor a ‘Check Ride’ scholarship for $500. Qualifications will be current medical and student pilots license. Cindy will send out applications to local flight schools to advertise the scholarship. The requirements of the scholarship money will be to complete the check ride within 24 months of receiving it, a letter of recommendation from their instructor and a personal statement of their relationship and intentions with aviation.
