On the path to achieving their goals, seven Eig-Watson School of Aviation students from Miami Dade College, Homestead Campus were presented with scholarships at the Greater Miami Aviation Association (GMAA) luncheon at the Miami Springs Country Club in August. The 2017 GMAA George E. Batchelor Aviation Scholarship winners from MDC were Ange Bautista, Louis Lennis, Lauren Michelin, Corey Pritchard, Juan Felipe Ramirez, Maxine Rodriguez and Stephanie Sarria. The honors continued as MDC alumnus Maikel Zaldivar was also presented with a GMAA George E. Batchelor Aviation Scholarship. The scholarships finance the A-320 Type Rating and ATP-CTP Certification course sponsored and provided by Pan Am International Flight Academy. Additionally, one of the students, Ange Bautista, received a private license scholarship sponsored by ICARO Learn to Fly. Valued at $10,000, this scholarship will help her obtain a private piloting license.
