2019 is going to be a great year for many deserving lady pilots. Why not YOU?!!

Applicants much choose between two forms:

  1.  Tailwheel Endorsement Scholarship Application Form
  2.  Name Your Own Scholarship Application Form

Tailwheel Endorsement Scholarships are open to all female pilots. Flight instruction and a limited travel allowance will be included in each scholarship awarded. All flight training will be administered by women taildragger CFIs. These ladies support our mission of empowering women to live their dream of flying a taildragger and in the process increase their flying skills.

There are a number of women CFIs who have volunteered to do flight training, some also donating the use of their aircraft. I welcome more women CFIs to step forward to help train our scholarship winners. In some cases, funding for aircraft rental and instructors will come from LadiesLoveTaildraggers’ scholarship donations. In all cases, travel expenses will be paid from our Scholarship Fund.

The Name Your Own Training scholarships are brand new this year and available to any female taildragger pilot including LadiesLoveTaildraggers’ members.

The “Name Your Own Scholarship” targets applicants’ individual flying skills and aims to provide additional flight training where needed. This is your opportunity to think inside-the-box, or go for it and dream outside the box! It’s all good. Tell me your goals and what you need to achieve them. Think Spin-training, STOL training, Mountain Flying, Aerobatics training, Upset training and more. Having trouble mastering grass strips or hesitate landing at controlled fields? Here’s your chance. Tell me what and tell me why and you’re half way there.

Flight instruction and a limited travel allowance will be included in each scholarship awarded. For the first time, we are offering a way to design your own scholarship. Whether you are chosen depends on your ability to convey your strengths and pinpoint the flying skill(s) you would like to improve. You’ll be asked a variety of questions followed by an opportunity to write your own scholarship; i.e. how LadiesLoveTaildraggers can help you achieve your aviation goals.

As noted, a number of women CFIs have volunteered to do flight training, some also donating the use of their aircraft. I welcome more women CFIs to step forward to help train our scholarship winners. In some cases, funding for aircraft rental and instructors will come from LadiesLoveTaildraggers’ scholarship donations. In all cases, travel expenses will be paid from our Scholarship Fund.

    Hello,

    I love flying and have cumulated just a few hours in my pilot log book. However, due to financial reasons I cannot afford to take consistent lessons or to get my private pilot license. I know you offer scholarships for those who have a license already. Will you offer scholarships for those who cannot afford to take lessons and get their initial license in the future? It’s my dream to fly and get my private pilot license.

    Kind regards,
    Vera
