Aviation Scholarships and Grants

AAERO Digital Marketing was born as a aviation digital marketing firm. Our Founder & CEO is 3rd generation private pilot who’s passionate about making aviation more affordable for aspiring pilots.

Aviation Scholarships are a great way for students who would love to get into the cockpit but cannot afford the tuition fees needed to become a pilot. There are limitations to how many scholarships and how competitive the applications process can be. Private Pilot Qualification (PPL) is one of the most popular forms of aviation scholarships available. This is because PPL allows students to earn a private pilot certificate at a lower cost compared to other commercial aviation scholarships.

Private pilot training will consist of ground instruction, flight instruction, and aircraft handling. The course work for each of these phases varies slightly, with all pilots receiving some of the same training from beginning to end. AAERO provides a handful of annual aviation to aspiring private pilots. AAERO Aviation Scholarships range from $150 to $1000 and are award to student pilots only.

PPL Training

The primary purpose of PPL training is to prepare pilots for their first solo flight. It is normally done in preparation for the PPL Certificate examination, which must be passed before a pilot can apply for a license. PPL training requires students to complete a basic level course and obtain an FAA-approved PPL. To qualify, students must also successfully pass the Airman’s License examination.

To be eligible for an AAERO scholarship, you must be a US citizen. You must also currently be enrolled in an FAA-mandated course or school. As part of the eligibility requirements, applicants must demonstrate a strong interest in flying.

Private pilot training grants are just one of many available opportunities for young people who wish to become pilots. These programs are available at various colleges and universities. They are specifically targeted toward those who have demonstrated an interest in becoming a pilot. Many of these scholarships and grants are specifically designed for students who are required to start out as pilots in their early years. In addition, there are a number of AAEO scholarships available for those who plan to use their new skills to become a commercial airline pilot.
