In an effort to grow and diversify the pilot population, the American Airlines Pilot Recruiting & Development team has announced the 2019 continuation of the Flight Education Grant. These grants are awarded to fund creative and inspirational ideas aimed at growing and diversifying the next generation of aviators. In the last several years, American Airlines has granted over $800,000 through its Flight Education Grant. This year, the primary focus is on high schools utilizing AOPA’s High School Aviation STEM Curriculum. AOPA and these schools have been invited to apply for a Flight Education Grant, up to $25,000 each. Grants are awarded based on the potential, creativity, and probability of success of the proposal.
