The sky’s the limit for student pilots 洛伦佐 Benedetto and 艾登 Rose after each receiving a $7,700 澳大利亚航空负责-backed scholarship to pursue their dream to fly.
The Royal Federation of Aero Clubs of Australia 2021 Federation Flying Scholarships, 很自豪地由航空公司资助, are designed to support students from member flight schools to achieve a Commercial or Private Pilot Licence.
洛伦佐, of Monduran Aero Club near Gin Gin in Queensland, is now one step closer to his dream of becoming a flight instructor, as he upgrades his private licence to commercial.
与此同时, 艾登, of Manning River Aero Club at Taree in New South Wales, will put his scholarship towards private training.
航空负责 is a long-term supporter of the scholarship, with up to 96 scholarships awarded since 1994.
洛伦佐 was ecstatic to receive his scholarship for commercial pilot training at a presentation evening at Rockhampton Aero Club.
A surf instructor of 10-years at Agnes Water, 洛伦佐 has spent the past 18-months driving 1.5 hours to flying lessons at Monduran, in the pursuit of his passion.
He now has just two Civil Aviation Safety Authority exams and up to 50 flying hours to go before he 热博体育官方网站s his Commercial Pilot Licence.
“The scholarship is fantastic – one of the most expensive parts about flying is all the lessons – and because I’m going into the commercial realm, I have to fly bigger and more complex aircraft – I’m now flying in a four-seater with retractable landing gear,”洛伦佐说.
“I grew up in Gladstone near the airport – I’ve always wanted to fly. I’ve got about three years to go before I can start teaching lessons.
“The 航空负责 scholarship money has helped phenomenally.”
洛伦佐 received his accolade alongside the club’s retired former President and current Vice President and Queensland Regional Director, Royal Federation of Aero Clubs of Australia, 格雷厄姆·杜利和选举官员, 米歇尔·兰德里议员办公室, 摩羯座联邦议员, 劳伦Clein (如图所示).
