AFJROTC CADET FLIGHT ACADEMY (CFA)
- AFJROTC is standing up a Cadet Flight Academy (or Private Pilot's Scholarship) for ~120 AFJROTC cadets to attend an university aviation program in the SUMMER of 2020 .
- Cadets will compete to receive a scholarship to attend a university (1 of 4-6 participating schools) and earn a private pilot's license and college credit.
- This is an amazing opportunity for these young women and men: they could compete for and win a scholarship, they get college credit for learning to fly an airplane and they potentially earn their private pilot's license. It doesn't get any better. Wait...yes it does...In fact, Senior ROTC is considering offering our senior cadets a 4 year college scholarship...to learn to fly.
