Tailwheels Etc., a flight school in Winter Haven, Fla., is accepting applications for a scholarship competition that will enable one high school student to become a private pilot.
The recipient’s package will include accommodations, all flight time and flight instructor time, knowledge and practical tests, and books. The recipient will be responsible for meals and transportation to and from Florida.
Tailwheels Etc.’s scholarship program is open to students aged 17 or older. To enter, students must submit a 30-second YouTube video about why they would benefit from receiving a private pilot certificate and post it to the wall of the Tailwheels Scholarship Facebook page. Complete details are available on the website. Videos will be accepted until midnight May 20.
Tailwheels Etc. was featured in the March 2011 issue of Flight Training magazine for its successful business practices and attention to customer satisfaction.
