“We know 80% of aspiring pilots drop out for lack of funding, making scholarships of paramount importance in aviation education, not only pilots but other high-demand occupations such as aviation maintenance technicians as well as others aspiring to aviation careers. By addressing the high cost of an aviation education, we can remove a major barrier to addressing workforce shortages and continue to help students pursue AMT, airline management and pilot careers,” said RACCA President Stan Bernstein.
