Aviation Scholarship Fund

$50,000 goal

Campaign created 5 months ago
There is a severe shortage of pilots, and unlike previous generations, aviation is a wonderful career for today's individuals searching for a place to call their own.  Third Coast Aviation LLC (TCA) would like to be able to provide matching scholarships to individuals seeking to learn to fly and get their private pilot's license (PPL).

Commercial pilots have seen their medium pay grow from $88,000 to $102,250 in 2015 , and employment in the sector is forecast to grow 11 percent every year until 2020.  Commercial pilots need over 1,500 hours of flight time which normally costs upwards of $200,000 to achieve, so many pilots took jobs in the past with regional airlines which paid no more than $30,000 a year for 5 years while they amassed enough hours to get a job with the "big boys" - but no more, now even the regional airlines start pilots at $50,000.

With your help, we at Third Coast Aviation LLC intend to help 20 individuals achieve their dream of taking the first step on their path to becoming a commercial pilot and changing their lives forever!

$2,500 each will get 20 aspiring pilots started on their path to get their Private Pilot License (PPL).  $10,000 is the national average for getting a PPL, so we will only be starting them on their path - they need to continue themselves, and we will only let them get started if they are able to match that beginning scholarship amount.  Our flight lessons are customized to each student, so sometimes it costs less to achieve this goal, and sometimes it takes more, but this is an average.

What's special about Third Coast Aviation LLC and why should you help us provide scholarships for student pilots?  We have a passion for helping our community - Brazoria County and it shows because we are highly recommended .  Unlike many CFR TItle 14 Part 61 flight schools, we bring a professional business approach to providing flight lessons which ensures that our student pilots are more successful in the long run.  And we include youth in our programs by providing a BSA Aviation Merit course , something very rare in the area.

How soon do we need the funds? Well, this week we provided Discovery Flights to 5 individuals through our Groupon outreach program , 2 of which said, "I want to take flight lessons so much but I need to figure our where I'm going to get the money..."  We want to be able to say, "Under certain circumstances, TCA can help provide a scholarship for your lessons."

And we want you to be part of our process - doing ourselves has been great!  The TCA partners are student pilots ourselves, and we love getting others up into the air to enjoy what most definitely is a life changing experience!!!  Help us change others' lives for the better...
