Using the official scoring guide the packages were reviewed and scored by the scholarship committee which was made up of four directors. The scores reflected the well-deserved successful winner as Fanny Leroy.
Fanny obtained her Private Pilot Licence in Quebec City. She has currently completed the requirements for her Commercial Pilots Licence in Pitt Meadows. She was the successful candidate for a flying program on emergency maneuver and unusual attitudes through the Ninety-Nines and has taken her training in Squamish. Fanny was also granted the 1,000.Mary Swain memorial scholarship awarded by the BCAC and is an active member of the Nintey-Nines and the BC Mountaineering Club.
Fanny was awarded our scholarship monetary award of 2,000.00 last month and has already successfully completed it with Fort Langley Air. I am happy to say this outdoor love of life girl has now changed her goals from putting her energy and money into IFR training, to obtaining advanced float flying training. She is ever so grateful to the BCFA for giving her this chance of finding where her love is in this world of aviation and will be furthering her flying goals in this area.
There is no doubt in my mind Fanny will continue to succeed in her goal of flying floats and will help keep the future of the freedom to Fly Floats in BC alive. The BCFA could not have awarded this scholarship to a more deserving pilot. Congratulations Fanny from the BCFA board and members.
Fanny is sorry she was unable to make this year’s AGM but says she will see you all next year.
Fanny is currently working full time for an aviation business and performing bookkeeping contracts part time to further her float flying goals. If you know of anyone who needs a bookkeeper for small contracts jobs please give her a call.
