A student pilot from Fairbanks, Alaska, has received AOPA’s first Student Pilot Scholarship, AOPA Foundation President Karen Gebhart announced Feb. 26 at the twenty-first annual International Women in Aviation Conference in Orlando, Fla.
Camila Roy of Fairbanks plans to use the money to complete helicopter training. Roy was one of dozens of applicants for the $3,000 scholarship. She intends to use her rotary-wing certificate to provide firefighting and other emergency services in Alaska.
AOPA has worked to keep general aviation fun, safe, and affordable since its inception in 1939. As part of its commitment to growing the pilot population, AOPA established the scholarship program for a woman pursuing a private, recreational, or sport pilot certificate who has obtained a student pilot certificate.
