Nicole Blount of Lake Placid, Florida, and Max Davidson of Jurupa Valley, California, have received the initial Ray Aviation Scholarships of up to $10,000 from the Experimental Aircraft Association, allowing these young people to take flight training in their local regions and pursue their dreams of flight.

The Ray Foundation has provided $1 million to EAA to fund Ray Aviation Scholarships for up to 100 young people, as the program seeks to improve the flight training success rate from the current 20 percent level to 80 percent for those participating in the scholarship program.

Blount was selected in conjunction with EAA Chapter 1240 based in Sebring, Florida. She attends Lake Placid High School in Florida and is enrolled in the aerospace course there.

“I have been introduced to the aerospace world through my high school,” Blount said. “I think that learning to fly will broaden my opportunities in life, as well as grant me richer experiences.”

Davidson, a student at Patriot High School in Jurupa Valley, was surprised with the scholarship award during EAA Chapter 1’s 65th anniversary celebration in Riverside, California.

“I couldn’t believe it when my name was called to be awarded the scholarship,” Davidson said. “EAA members always told me if I was interested, good things would happen … It’s every dream come true!”

    Learning is a persevering method and it couldn't think less about any age factor. In such present day time that is offering chances to be taken on any program at any age, a man would be man who isn't instructing himself. https://shwidkiy-art.com/

    It is the full scale commitment of an understudy to learn in the online nonconcurrent style of learning and along these lines it is remembering a colossal measure of worry for the youngsters' brain. I think, students should click here http://www.transtutors.com/blog/2017-best-plagiarism-detector-tools-professionals/ for getting useful tips. Ignoring the manner in which that it gives some adaptability in any case near the end, it is still incredibly upsetting for the youthful ones.
