Corporal Preethika Ganiger from the Port Adelaide Squadron of the Australian Air League was recently awarded a flying scholarship through Recreational Aviation Australia (https://www.raa.asn.au/)
Preethika completed the application, and attached the supporting reference letters including one from South Australia Wing OC Gp.Comr. Martin Ball.
The application also required an essay of no more than 1000 words, but of this requirement Preethika said, “I mean how could you write something like wanting to achieve a childhood dream in just 1000 words? Impossible.”
After submitting the application Preethika then had to wait 4 long months.
Finally, in July she received a letter advising she was successful in beating out 81 other entrants, in obtaining the scholarship and is now well on her way in achieving her flying goals.
Reflecting on this achievement Preethika said, “As a cadet of the Australian Air league, the coaching and knowledge of Aviation and air experiences and support from the officers and educators are true key to achieve this scholarship.”
All of us here at Port Adelaide Squadron, wish her the very best in her pursuit of her flying dream.
