What People Are Saying

Through CABAA's scholarship program, I received assistance for my private pilot flight training in 2011 and was awarded a Jet Type Rating in 2018. I stayed in touch with CABAA members and, by doing so, was recommended for an amazing job in the Chicago area. I now serve as Secretary for the CABAA Board of Directors, and it's been an honor to give back to the organization that so graciously gives to others, from students to maintenance technicians to pilots. Attending my first CABAA golf outing in 2011 turned out to be one of the best decisions I made for my career!

The CABAA scholarship program is an extraordinary program which provides advantages for winners that go far beyond the financial and professional development benefits furnished by these scholarships. Winning a CABAA scholarship introduces winners to a large network of aviation professionals and mentors who represent all facets of business aviation. The scholarship program is also a great way for established flight departments to identify up and coming talent. Jen-Air is proud to have hired six previous CABAA scholarship winners.
