NATIONAL FLIGHT ACADEMY 2021
The management of the National Flight Academy has made the decision to cancel all courses for 2021. This will obviously be a great disappointment to our 8th grade candidates who were hoping to be selected for the program in July as well as all members of the Friends of Fernandina Airport. We are planning to offer the scholarhip again in 2022.
THE JOSH BARBER MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
Friends of Fernandina Aviation (FoFA) awarded their first Joshua Barber Memorial Scholarship to Fernandina Beach High School seniors Elizabeth Springer and Kolby Kidd. The scholarship will be used to assist with the students' further education. Elizabeth plans to attend Jacksonville University and enroll in the Aviation & Aeronautics Program focusing on the Commercial Pilot Track. Kolby will attend Virginia Tech where he plans to study computer engineering and participate in the wrestling program. In recognizing the scholarship winners, FoFA Vice President and Scholarship Chairman Mark Avakian stated "FoFA did not intend to award two scholarships but these two students were exceptional and represented the qualities we were looking for."
