Spring 2012

Dear Aviation Enthusiast

EAA Chapter 73, Fairfield, NJ has announced it will be sponsoring two youth to attend EAA’s Air Academy  this summer.

A scholarship will be awarded to two local students, ages 12-13 and/or 14–15 who have an interest in aviation. The Air Academy is a week-long event held each summer (mid June to early July of 2012) at EAA’s headquarters in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  It is an incredible opportunity for youth interested in aviation.

A brochure with more information, and the application, can be found at:

Please note that due to the extremely short timeline this first year, the requirement for references is waived.

The Scholarship covers tuition, room & board and airfare for the participant.

I know, if you love aviation they way I do, you will agree this is an opportunity not to be missed! This is how dreams start to become reality. Please contact me or any of the other board members of Chapter 73 if you have any questions or concerns. If you are interested in applying for the scholarship, we ask you to complete the application and submit it by March 20, 2012.  Submission details are in the application.

This is Chapter 73's first year and we want to see it continued in the coming years.  If you or someone you know would like to help us inspire youth to achieve their aviation goals in any way, please visit our "About Us" page or contact us at
