What exactly are we at Build-A-Pilot looking for in potential scholarship recipients? Is there any interest in aviation? Where are the young people? Do young individuals still get enthusiastic about airplanes? As part of the aviation community, we face many questions like this. Most of the volunteers involved with Build-A-Pilot were those young, enthusiastic kids once. So we find it hard to believe they just don’t exist anymore. Those kids are there, we know it!
A short video featuring Kyle Fosso of Adventure Above was recently released. Kyle is a young man with dreams that are sky high. He plans on flying to all 50 states in his personally rebuilt Cessna 170 in 2018. He personifies what Build-A-Pilot is looking for. His “sticktoitivness” and passion for aviation is contagious. His enthusiasm and commitment to aviation is what we have experienced in our own aviation stories. Our hope is to enable more youth like him to pursue those dreams.
Take a few minutes and watch this video about Kyle. It’s truly an inspiration to us at Build-A-Pilot to see what true passion and commitment to aviation can bring.
