The University of Georgia Aviation Club provides unique opportunities for students at UGA to network with peers and industry professionals, participate in flight opportunities, and above all - enjoy aviation.
This year the UGA Aviation Club is hosting its third annual Spring Fly-In to fund the club’s third Student Pilot Scholarship. The scholarship fund will be awarded to a qualified student who shows true passion and commitment in their pursuit of their private pilot certificate. As our club is the only aviation organization on campus and is 100% student-run, we are fully funded by club members. Thus, our scholarship will allow us to continue to grow the aviation community at UGA alongside the club. We believe in the importance of offering opportunities for students in the aviation club and this scholarship fund will provide a unique opportunity for a student pilot to earn their wings. Our first recipient of the scholarship took his private pilot checkride almost a year ago and is now on our executive board! You can read more about last year’s event and scholarship here.
The Spring Fly-In will be Saturday, April 22nd, 2023 from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the Athens Ben Epps Airport. There will be airplanes, food, drinks, music, and a corn-hole tournament. If you would like to donate an item for our event or become a sponsor of the event, please contact a member of our executive team. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please use the GoFundMe. We hope that you are able to attend and enjoy this exciting event with the community. Please assist us in reaching our goal by sharing this GoFundMe link describing our event.
Our club has seen a dramatic increase in participation and excitement within the past few years and we hope you can help us continue this growth. We appreciate your support and look forward to blue skies!
