Three new scholarships are now available through Women in Aviation. Sporty’s Foundation is offering two $5,000 recreational pilot flight training scholarships for WAI members who are small aircraft maintenance technicians, and a $1,000 scholarship has been established in memory of Flo Irwin, who co-founded Aircraft Spruce and Specialty. The scholarship will be awarded to a female college junior or senior majoring in aviation management with the intent of starting her own aviation business. The scholarship winners will be announced during the 20th anniversary International Women in Aviation Conference, to be held February 26 to 28 in Atlanta.
