FEFY Advanced Training

The FEFY Advanced Training scholarship helps support students under the age of 21 who have a private pilot glider certificate and are working on a commercial or instructor glider certificate.

To apply, email FEFY (fefy@sugarbushsoaring.com) with a letter of interest that includes the following information:

  • Glider experience (number of total flights, number of total hours, number of flights as pilot in command, what aircraft have you flown)
  • Power experience (if any)
  • Describe how this opportunity will further your aviation goals

The scholarship recipient will need to pass the appropriate FAA written exam prior to the release of funds, and will need to develop a training plan with the Chief Instructor.

Scholarships are funded by charitable contributions to FEFY (a 501(c)(3)).
