Aviation Scholarship

GlobalAir.com is passionate about supporting the future of aviation. Whether a professional pilot who flies for a living or for the pure pleasure
and satisfaction of becoming a pilot. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide $1,000 annually to four American students who are dedicated to blogging on a
weekly basis about flight training, flying, school and their interest in aviation.

By partnering with the students in university aviation programs throughout the United States, we wish to provide a scholarship that is beneficial to the student, as well as provide a platform
for students to share their experiences while training for a successful career in aviation.

The platform helps connect the student pilot with a large aviation online community of pilots, engineers, flight departments, as well as serve as a recruitment
tool for the school itself. Submissions will be accepted starting March 2017. The deadlines for application submissions is August 14, 2017.

High Flight

"Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air....

Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.
Where never lark, or even eagle flew — And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space, - Put out my hand, and touched the face of God."
John Gillespie Magee, Jr.
August 1941
