The second annual Super Bowl party and golf tournament held at Houston-based Wing Aviation raised more than $13,000 for the Wing Aviation/PAMA Scholarship Fund. The annual program is dedicated to helping fund one year’s tuition for a student attending Westwood College of Aviation Technology. More than 200 attended the party and 100 golfers participated in the golf tournament.

With the support of the Houston Chapter of the Professional Aviation Maintenance Association and Westwood College, Wing Aviation hosts the annual event to create awareness and raise funds for the scholarship program. “Education is fundamental in any industry, and we want to encourage people to pursue the best,” said Brian Wing, president of the FBO/MRO. The scholarship recipient also receives an internship at Wing Aviation. Last year’s winner, Brian Pitts, will finish his last year at Westwood College and his professional internship with Wing Aviation this year.
