We Florida Financial has partnered with the Greater Miami Aviation Association to help provide scholarships to qualified aviation students pursuing a career in the South Florida Aviation industry. With every eligible aircraft loan financed through We fly, a $500 donation will go directly to the GMAA-Bachelor Aviation Scholarship Fund. Donations will continue up until December 31st, 2021 and cap at $10,000. Scholarships are selected in August and announced in October.
Many flight schools in the South Florida area charge between $8,000 to $14,000, just for a private pilot certificate. Scholarships such as the GMAA-Bachelor Scholarship could be the only chance some of these students have to pursue their aviation dreams. “Our team at We Florida Financial is very excited to grow our relationship with GMAA. We have been members of the association for the past 5 years and they have been a huge supporter of our aviation lending program”, said Alexander Martin, Aviation Loan Program Manager at We Florida Financial. “Having personally gone through flight training myself, I know how expensive and rigorous the training is for many students. We Florida Financial is all about helping our members and community neighbors achieve their dreams. Needless to say, I am thrilled to be launching this partnership, which will provide direct scholarship aid to local students looking to get into the cockpit.”
