Students from AIM Houston (AMH) recently had the opportunity to compete for this year’s Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) SportAir scholarship, a $500 award that can be used for any purpose related to their education. We would like to extend our congratulations to this year’s winner, Phat Tran, for his short essay addressing the topic of, “Challenges of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.”
Although multiple students entered the competition, Tran’s essay was selected for its superior content and presentation.
EAA is a growing and diverse organization of members with a wide range of aviation interests and backgrounds. EAA was founded in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who were interested in building their own airplanes. Through the decades, the organization expanded its mission to include antiques, classics, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultra-light sport aircraft, helicopters and contemporary manufactured aircraft.
