Women in Corporate Aviation (WCA, Booth I61) awarded two flight attendant training scholarships at their annual networking breakfast on Wednesday during EBACE 2019. Andrea Prisca Garcia, scholarship chair for WCA, told AIN that all of WCA's scholarships awarded this year at EBACE are industry-sponsored.
UK Service awarded Aleksandra Chorazka a corporate flight attendant master training class scholarship. Chorazka works for AMC Aviation in Warsaw, Poland, at Modlin Airport. FlightSafety International awarded Judy Elaine Downhill its emergency initial training class scholarship. Downhill is a freelance flight attendant from Idaho. The winners of this years' scholarships were chosen from a broad pool by the scholarship sponsors.
WCA offers scholarships to its members several times a year. "The next batch of scholarships are open for applications in June," said Garcia. "We are soliciting those scholarships now, but we expect to be able to offer around 20 different training scholarships, including flight type ratings, management training, and flight attendant training, valued at nearly $100,000 combined," she continued. Those scholarships will be awarded in October at NBAA-BACE.
