Non-Career Track: For veterans seeking to utilize the structure and challenge of aviation to aid the transition from the military to civilian life. S2B's scholarships may be used for Private, Instrument and Multi-engine ratings. Applicants are required to hold a Third Class medical certificate or the ability to operate under the provisions of BasicMed.
