I would like to apply for this scholarship because I aspired to become a pilot since I was 2 years old. I'm currently 18 years old and a senior at Shadow Creek high school. I would like to fly for Southwest Airlines in the near future. To make my goal become reality, I need to recieve all of the flight training and flight hours needed in order to reach that first officer seat in a 737. With that, Air Line Pilots association is definitley the way to go!!

My dream from a young age is to become an Airline Pilot and if selected with this scholarship it would help my dream turn into a reality however when I do become a Pilot I will help someone that in need.

Edward Nicasio  on 1/30/2020 7:00:26 PM

I find the scholarship as an jump start in ones perspective of aviation studies. In my humble opinion, the scholarship is more of a way in attracting more aviation lovers in pursuing their goal,which they may not had have the money to fund for like myself.The scholarship will make the goals of others come true.

Cecilio Cansancio  on 1/28/2020 8:25:31 AM

Being an Airline Pilot is more than a dream for me. Since I was 4 years old, I started to think about "what am I gonna be someday? what could be my future?" I was looking at sky then I saw an airplane. And I wonder how does it feel to take flight an airplane. I was so curious how does it feel when you take passengers to their destination safely. I hope this scholarship will help me to accomplished my dream.
