This is the second journal entry provided to us by Lisa Kienholz, who was selected for a Private Pilot Scholarship from Girls With Wings. The Girls With Wings 2014 Scholarship Program includes the Private Pilot Scholarship, to help defray the cost of flight training lessons in pursuit of a private pilot certificate. This scholarship targets those individuals who have soloed but have not completed the Private Pilot Course. The Private Pilot Scholarship is in the amount of $1000.00, funded by the generous donations from supporters of Girls With Wings, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Lisa's application essay is published here and her second essay here.
I am continuing my lessons in CP Aviation’s Cessna 150s because I am close to the checkride but I have now begun lessons in my Luscombe 8E as well. Perhaps this is adding to my challenge but I just can’t leave her in the hangar all of the time! I look forward to getting my PPL soon. It will be a relief to take the weight off of my shoulders and then I will be able to concentrate on my tailwheel endorsement in the Luscombe and mastering the fine art of the tailwheel flying.
Essays about flight training from the other awardees will be published here as they are received.
