Need a Grant for Flight School

clydesdales1 started this conversation

Hi.  I am looking for a grant for my son to go to flight school.  While he was in high school, he was in ROTC and had planned to enter the military as an officer and learn to fly.  This was cut short as he battled cancer.  It has now been over 10 years since his cancer and he has been medically cleared to fly.

During his treatments he did learn to fly and did receive his private pilots license.  He would like to follow his dream and be a commercial pilot and an instructor.  We have a good flight school where we live, I just need to find the $60,000.00 to send him to school.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thank you.

I think you'll find a listing or two on my blog page, http://Schmidty.Aidpage.com that has to do with flying, one I know is for women but it still would hurt to ask them if they know of any. .

Good for you on flight school.  Glad to hear you were cleared on cancer to fly.  I wish I could help you further though.    I just wanted to add  nothing is an impossiable goal.  All things are possiable.  Just believe  I am also wishing you the very best.
