Sky’s the limit for trainee pilot
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.
