MANSFIELD, OH - The Mansfield Aviation Club (MAC) is pleased to announce that they are accepting applications for the 2018 Aviation Scholarship which was established in 2016 to fulfill a key part of our purpose, that being “to provide aviation scholarships for others to learn to fly.”

This year’s scholarship will be $1000 to be used exclusively for flight and/or ground training.

To be eligible for the MAC Aviation Scholarship, applicants must:

· Be a United States citizen

· Live in Richland County or a contiguous county

· Be at least 16 years of age by the application deadline

· Hold a current FAA Student Pilot Certificate at the time of application

Throughout its history, the Mansfield Lahm Airport has served our community by being one of the finest general aviation airports in our state. However, in recent years, as the cost of flying has become more expensive, many who had the dream to become a pilot may have found it beyond their financial means. It is our hope that these scholarships will enable some of those individuals in the Richland area the opportunity to fulfill their dream and keep general aviation in our community vibrant into the future.

 

In keeping with Mansfield’s Airport Day theme “Keep Flying, Born to Fly, Learn to Fly,” the Mansfield Aviation Club will be awarding this year’s Aviation Scholarship during the 2018 Airport Day Celebration.

 

For those who love aviation and want to support this effort, tax deductible donations can be made to the MAC Aviation Scholarship Fund through the Richland County Foundation web site: www.richlandcountyfoundation.org/funds/mansfield-aviation-club
