LeRoy Homer was the First Officer on Flight 93, which was hijacked and crashed in Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001. The mission of The Foundation is to continue LeRoy’s love of flight by encouraging young men and women who wish to pursue aviation careers as professional pilots. The Foundation will award flight instruction scholarships to potential students for private pilot certification. Dollar amounts for the scholarship will vary.
The LeRoy W. Homer Jr. foundation will award flight instruction scholarships for potential students, in order to obtain private pilot certification. Eligible applicants must: be between 16-23; be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident; have not been charged or convicted of any misdemeanors or felonies; be fluent and literate in English; be able to attain a FAA third-class medical certificate (this certificate will only be requested once an individual has been selected for a scholarship, and does not need to be included with the application); and have dependable transportation and sufficient time available to complete training at the nearest Cessna Pilot Training Center. Recipients are notified in May.
