New Flying Award to encourage women of all ages to fly!
A one-time $500 Award is now available for 2018.
The British Columbia Coast Chapter 99s are remembering Jean Prior with a one-time Award of $500, available to a woman pilot in Western Canada to help her continue in her aviation career, hobby, or education. Application deadline is July 31st, 2018.
Jean Prior was a lively, positive, and generous member of the BC Coast Chapter Ninety-Nines, and well loved by all. She flew her Cessna 150 with great pride. She encouraged women of all ages to learn to fly, and encouraged new pilots to enjoy flying as often as possible. Therefore, preference will be given to a low-time Private Pilot to help her build time and experience.
This one-time award is in addition to our annual West Canada Section 99s scholarship of $1500. Eligibility criteria are the same, so only one application is necessary. The winner will be selected from that pool of applicants.
