Two Aviation Exploring Scholarships
awarded to high school students
Sporty's has awarded $1,000 Aviation Exploring Scholarships to
two high school students. Both recipients are planning careers in
aviation, and both students enjoyed their first flights as Young
Eagles. The scholarships are sponsored by Sporty's.
Bradley A. Bormuth, age 16, of Morganton, North Carolina, is a
student pilot with plans to become either an airline or corporate
pilot. He has 79 hours, 20 of which are solo; he will turn 17, the
minimum age to receive his certificate, in August 2004. He says,
"My present flight instructor has told me on several occasions that
I am ready to take my checkride."
Charles E. Watson, age 17, of
Lebanon, Tennessee, is a student pilot who plans to take his
checkride by mid-Summer 2004. He became an Eagle Scout with Silver
Palms in 2003. He hopes to have an instrument rating by the time he
graduates from high school. His ultimate plan is to become an Air
Force pilot, flying F-15s or F-22s.
The scholarship money may be used to advance any aspect of their
aviation careers. Bormuth says, "I want a career that I can enjoy
as well as have a fun time doing my job. What better way to do that
than to have a career in aviation?" Watson’s flight
instructor says, "He has great flying skills and has displayed good
situational awareness and an outstanding attitude throughout his
