Last year Youth Flight Canada (YFC) awarded $7500 in scholarships to current and former cadet glider pilots to do civilian soaring at York Soaring Association in Ontario. $10,000 is available in 2016 for licenced glider pilots. To apply, complete the application form on YFC web-site and submit prior to May 1 2016.

These scholarships provide many pilots with the opportunity to complete their first hour long flight, two hour long flight, and even 5 hour long flight to obtain various FAI badges.
