Aviation Program and scholarships

Every year the local Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) chapter donates one or two scholarships (Young Eagles Scholarships) for high school students to be trained for a Private Pilot’s license, all the costs of renting the aircraft and instructor. The student just has to pick up a couple of hundred dollars of books and navigation supplies. Our EAA Chapter 1049 website, describing the scholarships, is:  http://www.tetoneaa.com/scholarships/ and the Community Foundation website re. the scholarships is: http://www.cfjacksonhole.org/apply/student-scholarships/. EAA has had several of the recipients go on to careers in airline aviation, general aviation, and military aviation, which is very rewarding for all concerned! The president of the local EAA chapter is Chris Schuehler. His email is chris@schuehler.net and his cell phone is (307) 413-4185. Chris can provide more information re. the application and selection process, which is coming up soon
