The Sporty’s Foundation paid out $39,998 in gifts and grants during the third quarter of 2013. EAA’s Next Step program, which provides free online access to Sporty’s Private Pilot Training Course for all Young Eagles, remains the major beneficiary of foundation funds. So far, 23,000 Young Eagles have been given free access to Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course.
In addition, The Sporty’s Foundation provided $5,000 for an Aviation Exploring scholarship, funded a Women in Aviation scholarship and an Aircraft Electronics Association scholarship.
“Quarter by quarter, we are doing what we can to encourage the next generation of pilots and technicians,” said President Michael Wolf. “We know our scholarships ease the way and broaden the horizons of deserving young people.”
To ensure maximum return on donor investments, 100% of The Sporty’s Foundation operating costs are underwritten by Sporty’s Pilot Shop.
