Glider Training Scholarships?

Thu May 30, 2019 1:47 pm

Does anyone know of any good glider training scholarships? I want to get a PPL-Glider and then get an ASEL as an add-on.

Assuming youre in the US, have you checked out SSA.org? look for a local glider club.

The cost of a glider private is about the same as an private ASEL.

Most glider clubs are communities and they tend to take care of their own. Lots of kids have gotten their private glider certificate by just helping around the glider field, washing a lot of airplanes, and instructors taking them up when there was a glider free and wasn't being used at no cost to the kid.

Ok. Thanks so much! There's a club near me that allows you to train only paying for rentals and tows, but you have to be a member, which has dues, etc. Might need a paying job for that. :(
