New Aerobatic Scholarship Available!
Greg Koontz announced that his aerobatic flight school, Greg Koontz Aerobatics at Sky Country Lodge, Ashville, Alabama, will provide a full scholarship to promote aerobatic instruction. "The scholarship is offered to support my interest in promoting and improving the aerobatic instruction field," Greg says. "As it is today, there are no set standards for qualifying aerobatic teachers. It is my hope to improve awareness for this need and help influence industry standards."
The scholarship consists of an eight-flight training program at Greg Koontz Aerobatics. All required ground school is included as well as four nights stay at Sky Country Lodge with its all-inclusive accommodations. The recipient would only be responsible for travel to and from the school.
Greg Koontz Aerobatics has partnered with the International Aerobatic Club to promote and administer the scholarship program. The program is not an initial aerobatic course. For that reason the scholarship is targeted at those certificated flight instructors who have some tangible experience in aerobatics and have demonstrated by their activities that they are interested in becoming involved in aerobatic instruction.
To be eligible, one must have a current instructor certificat and have a demonstrated need for the financial support provided by this program. The award will be presented to the best qualified applicant each year at the IAC Annual Membership Meeting held during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.
