Financing The Flying Dream


The best sources to fund your flight training



Scholarship Sources


Because scholarships are essentially free money, it pays to be diligent in searching out what's available out there. Many of these go un-awarded year after year, and most require very little to apply. There are scores of very specialized scholarships, too, such as scholarships for minorities, people with disabilities, or regional scholarships specific to states or cities. Spending some time searching for flight-training scholarships is a great investment in your career. Here's a start:
