FAA aviation scholarships

Scholarships in aviation are the most sought after types of financial aid for students. By applying for our scholarships, students could recieve up to $35,000 towards their pilot training costs at our academy.

Scholarships do not have to be paid back and are not always based on financial need! While we do offer a few types of flight school scholarships, we also accept many third party scholarships! Students are required to find and apply for third party scholarships on their own. The resources below are to assist those who wish to pursue an aviation scholarship.
