Sky’s the limit for trainee pi­lot

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

KENT Street Se­nior High School stu­dent Alex Hazel will this Fri­day re­ceive the Min­is­ter's Avi­a­tion Schol­ar­ship.

Worth $3000, the schol­ar­ship is the only one of its kind for public school stu­dents.

It will be pre­sented by Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Peter Col­lier and will pay for Alex’s fly­ing lessons.

Alex has trav­elled from Mid­land since he en­rolled at Kent Street SHS as a Year 8 stu­dent.

He ob­tained a recre­ational pi­lot’s li­cence in De­cem­ber and has com­pleted sev­eral nav­i­ga­tion flights to ob­tain his pri­vate pi­lot’s li­cence which he hopes to com­plete in the next few months.

He hopes to fly for Vir­gin Aus­tralian in the fu­ture.
