Norman Perfect Flight Training Scholarships

These allow youths under the age of 26 and opportunity to get a Glider Pilot licence at a low cost.  Norman Perfect was a great instructor for many years at our club and we hope in part he will continue to live in our memories by dedicating these scholarships in his name.

The current program is aimed at students enrolled in several aviation related, post-secondary schools.  Recipients of the Flight Training Scholarship will sign an agreement to make work commitments to the club as with the Soaring Scholarships as outlined in the Learn To Fly - Club Documents section of this website.
