This scholarship was established by the National Aviation Heritage Alliance (NAHA)
to honor the memories of the two Wright B Flyer pilots and engineers lost in an
aircraft accident in July 2010.
The first award of this scholarship was made immediately following the 109th
Anniversary of Powered Flight ceremony held at the Wright Memorial on Wright
Patterson Air Force Base.
The scholarship was awarded to William Daniel (Will) Everett. The $1500 will allow Will to continue his flight training towards a Private Pilots license. Will currently has 17 hours of flight time and has soloed.
Wright B Flyer Inc. also provided Will with an Honorary Aviator Membership which will give him an orientation ride in our 1911 Wright B Flyer look-a-like aircraft.
This scholarship will be awarded annually.
