Future of Flight Scholarship Fund
In 2018 the Airport Authority established the Future of Flight Scholarship for students at the two Pittsburgh-Butler Regional Airport flight schools. Thanks to several generous donations, two $2,500 scholarships were awarded in 2019. Fundraising efforts during the Pittsburgh-Butler Regional Airport 90th Anniversary Celebration helped build the fund and enabled the committee to award one $5,000 scholarship and two $2,500 scholarships in January.
Although potential fundraising events could not be held this year, there is currently an effort to continue the momentum of the growing fund. Two generous supporters have pledged a matching gift for funds received through the end of this year, up to $5,000.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the fund. Your help, when combined with others and then DOUBLED!, will further ensure that future scholarships will be awarded annually to deserving student pilots.
