The Eastern New England chapter of the International Organization of Women Pilots (The Ninety-Nines) is accepting applications for its annual scholarship program. Scholarship opportunities are available for women and men who reside or are studying in one of the six New England states.
The Katharine Barr Honorary Scholarship is open to women and men and is for $1,500. The William Bridge Scholarship and the Ann Wood Kelly Scholarship are open to women with at least a private pilot certificate, and are for $1,500 each. The New England Section of The Ninety-Nines offers a scholarship in memory of New Hampshire pilot Shirley Mahn that is for $1,500.
Applications must be postmarked no later than Jan. 31, 2012. For criteria or applications, email firstname.lastname@example.org or send a stamped, self-addressed business-size envelope to Olga Mitchell, 10 Glory Lane, East Falmouth, MA 02536.
For pilots, the 60,000-plus-member Civil Air Patrol readily comes to mind when an aerial role in a rescue is launched.
The basics haven’t changed—flying clubs are still a cost-effective way to fly and enjoy the company of your fellow aviators.
The Flying Musicians will appear at the upcoming 110th anniversary of powered flight celebration in North Carolina.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
