3 Pilots-in-Training Awarded Scholarships

Aviation Adventures on Monday awarded three scholarships to help flight students continue their pursuit of a private pilot’s license.

Owner Bob Hepp said the scholarships—totaling $7,000—were made possible by the generosity of clients of the flight school. The scholarships were presented during a ceremony at Leesburg Executive Airport.

They were awarded to Nicole Cowboy, a 16-year-old Lightridge High School student who recently completed her first solo fight and is active with the Civil Air Patrol; Stephen Wilson, an Oakton High School student who already has 30 hours of flight training; and Caroline Johnson, who recently completed her doctoral thesis on U.S. women airline transport pilots and is a Guggenheim fellow at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.

Aviation Adventure operates flight schools in Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, Stafford and Winchester. Learn more ataviationadventures.com.

    Outstanding. Good on these young people for learning to fly. It’s a serious undertaking and a great achievement — we need way more of this in America.
