The Alaska Airmen Association's mission is to promote Aviation in Alaska. It is our dream to see more young people catch the flying bug. We want to give you as many options as possible! These are a few of our friends in the industry, giving away some great scholarships.
High School to Flight School Scholarship Program
High School to Flight School started with a simple idea: What if we could help students passionate about flying while also helping our local community.
HSFS covers all costs associated with obtaining a private pilot license, including flight physical, test fees, and flight time. The program is designed for high school students who have always dreamed of flying, but do not have the financial means to pursue their passion.
HSFS student pilots “earn” their flight time by volunteering with a local community service organization or project of their choice. Every hour of volunteer time worked is an hour of flight time earned.
MENTORSHIP & SUPPORT
Students not only benefit from financial assistance, but through HSFS are introduced to a community of pilots they can relate to and, most importantly, learn from. Scholarship students work with a dedicated HSFS mentor throughout their flight training.
