It’s that time of the year again where we #PayItForward by giving an H & C Wellington Excellence Achievement Scholarship to student pilots via the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals.
Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals
The Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals consists of astronauts, commercial pilots, military aviators, maintenance technicians, flight instructors, air traffic controllers, flight attendants, students and more. It is a nonprofit organization founded in 1976 dedicated to empowering minorities in all aviation and aerospace careers.
They have 4 types of memberships: Youth, Professional, Corporate, and Institutional. See their website for more information on the best membership type that fits you.
H & C Wellington Excellence Achievement Scholarship
Han was a recipient of several financial scholarships at OBAP. So we fully understand the financial challenges associated with pursuing a career in Aviation. We decided to give back by giving a scholarship to student pilots, the H & C Wellington Excellence Achievement Scholarship.
“This Excellence Achievement Scholarship is being offered so that one day an aspiring aviator that is fully motivated and driven by success will one day realize their goals and dreams of becoming an Airline Pilot.”
For more information:
See other available scholarships from FedEx, United, Delta, and more here.
Awarding ceremony will be at the 42nd Annual Convention and Career Exposition on August 15 – 17, 2018 in Houston, Texas.
This is only open to US citizens and residents. If you know anybody who is studying to be a pilot and need financial help, please pass this information.
Registration is only until May 1st, 2018. So, hurry!

Booking a Flight. When finding cheap flights, we try a combination of search engines to ensure we’re not missing out on the best deals. We use SkyScanner, Expedia, Kiwi.com, Kayak, and Google Flights, then compare them to the prices shown on the airlines’ website.
Booking Accommodation. We prefer staying in hotels. Booking.com is our favorite when it comes to finding the cheapest rate. Again, it won’t hurt to check the hotel’s main website. They usually offer discounts for booking directly with them. For last-minute booking, check out HotelTonight. There are also other types of accommodation like Airbnb, hostel (Hostelworld has the largest inventory), and Couchsurfing.
Sightseeing & Tours. We like DIY tours - it gives you freedom and flexibility. You can take advantage of the CityPass and Sightseeing Pass. But we have joined in several tours that maximized our time and made our trip easier. Feel free to check out Intrepid, and Trusted Tours & Attractions for discounted offers.
Author's Note: This information was accurate when it was published, but can change without notice. Please be sure to confirm all rates and details directly with the company in question before planning your trip.
