It’s amazing, and a really a good way for making impossible dreams come true.

Ajok Mapior  on 1/26/2021 10:38:49 PM

I don't really know where to begin and seeing all these people that are trying to pursue their dreams of becoming a private pilot one day if it's possible, but the problem everyone is struggling with financially, I know that I wouldn't even get on the waiting list of this scholarship because there are so many dreamers who are to follow that dream of theirs. To be honest am just a high school senior with a love of going to college and becoming a pilot one day if it's possible, but everything is possible if you put your mind and your heart into that one thing you love and go after your dreams.

Kyla Ghen Mendina  on 1/13/2021 7:21:57 AM

This is my dream. I always wanted to become a Pilot someday. But no one will support my financial needs. For my tuition, books, and everything I need. Even though I work part-time to support my needs, it still not enough. It might take years. That is why after seeing this post, I decided to apply. This might be God's answer to my prayers. This is not just a merely coincidence. I want to achieve my dreams and give my family a better life. I grow up with nothing and I don't want to miss a big opportunity like this. I hope I will get this scholarship. Thank you!

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.
