From the start of my training til now almost at my checkride, I’ve felt supported from everyone I’ve met, especially my amazing instructor Adam, to keep pushing through! It’s been a longer-than normal journey for me to get my private pilot, but everyone’s encouragement has kept my head high. I’m very thankful to have gotten this scholarship to help me continue school through working 4 jobs and having school/ car loans. I’m very passionate about aviation since Eric and Beth convinced me that I would be capable of flying at my discovery flight. I grew up always having my dad talk about his “cool” late brother that owned a Cessna, so it’s so incredibly special to me to keep aviation in my family. I can’t say it enough, JB Aviation is the best community to be a part of!
