Flight training provides opportunities for personal development, enhanced self-esteem, exploration, and experimentation. The cockpit of an airplane is a place where people learn to think, rely on themselves, develop their strengths, and overcome their weaknesses. Cochise Community College has more than 45 years of experience, helping individuals achieve their dreams of flying. In cooperation with Northrop Grumman we are pleased to offer a $5,000 flight training scholarship at Cochise Community College in Douglas, Arizona, to a WAI member pursing a private pilot certificate, instrument rating, or commercial pilot certificate. In addition to WAI requirements the applicant must be a U.S. citizen, hold a valid third-class medical, have a desire to pursue aviation as a career, and submit an additional 500-word essay describing their desire and goals in aviation.
