Marco volunteered to take on a special project during his Internship at CAF headquarters. Taking it from concept to completion, he designed a portable white board stand that is backed with a cork board. He said the planning and research were the most difficult parts, but through the process learned how to use new tools, which "will help me in the future."
"This was one of the biggest projects I've ever done and I'm proud of myself for finishing it." Nice work Marco!
November 11, 2020 (Dallas, TX) Four months ago in August, Troy was awarded a $10,000 flight training scholarship from Citation Jet Pilots, administered by Blue Sky Educational Foundation. Before he received the scholarship, Troy was tasked with passing the FAA private pilot airplane written knowledge exam. During the past 4 months, he studied for the test and a week ago passed, qualifying him for the full scholarship. Currently he has 12.7 hours glider flight time and soon, with the financial support of the Citation Jet Pilots, he will take a big step in fulfilling a lifelong dream of obtaining his private pilot’s license.
