In an effort to help diversify the Corporate Aviation Industry, CFA Life has teamed up with Jamie Gibson (Founder of Flightess LLC) and Scott Arnold (Partner at DaVinci Inflight Training Institute) to present a new Scholarship awarded to an aspiring POC Corporate Flight Attendant.
The POC/CFA Scholarship will be awarded to one (or more, depending on funds raised) recipient/s to complete Corporate Flight Attendant Initial Service and Safety Training. We will also be organizing a “phase 2” fundraiser to collect airline miles and hotel points to cover the recipients travel expenses.
As we all know, Business Aviation has recently taken a temporary hit due to Covid-19. Right now, we are asking for donations to make this scholarship possible, so that in the near future when the market re-opens, we may begin taking the necessary steps in diversifying our industry.
All funds will be temporarily set aside until the time is right to award the Scholarship, and will then be handled by Jamie Gibson. Any donation large or small is extremely appreciated, and any additional funds raised will be set aside for future scholarship recipients.
We have established a diverse group of industry leaders to serve as our Scholarship Committee. Details on who can apply/how to apply for the scholarship coming soon.
Let’s come together as an industry and overcome discrimination in Business Aviation.
If you have any questions, please contact Jamie Gibson, Scott Arnold, or direct message @cfa_life via Instagram.
Thank you for your support!
