Chase Scholar Update Photo member profiles - scholar updateThe day has finally arrived! On Wednesday, the 11th of this month, I successfully passed the Private Pilot checkride with DPE Jim Bair! It has certainly been a long time coming, but I’m glad to have endured the private pilot journey with so much support around me. I know my aviation journey doesn’t end here, and I could not have wished for a better foundation to continue upon. I’d certainly like to give a big thanks to everyone who helped me get to this point.

In regards to the future, I’ll be attending the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND, pursuing a degree in commercial aviation while also obtaining all the appropriate licenses and qualifications, working toward my goal of one day getting on with the airlines.

EAA Chapter 932 thanks EAA Oshkosh and the Ray Foundation for the opportunity to host the Ray Aviation Scholarship.
