Chapter Sponsorship to the EAA Air Academy

Our chapter received a total of nine applicants for consideration to be sponsored to attend the EAA Air Academy at Oshkosh, Wisconsin, this coming July. The application deadline was December 31, 2018. A team of three board members will finalize the selection process and move forward with consideration of each of the applicants. The chapter will select one individual aged 14-15 and one individual aged 16-18 to attend the week-long summer camps held on the EAA Headquarters facility at Oshkosh. The chapter will pay for round-trip transportation and Air Academy tuition for the two selected individuals from our Richard and Susan Bristow Memorial Scholarship Fund. This is the first such chapter efforts to sponsor individuals to the Air Academy and we will track the process carefully as we look to future sponsorships and scholarships.
