.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  Luke Vaughn, EAA 179 Ray Scholar

Luke Vaughn, a graduating senior from Volcano Vista High School has been volunteering alongside adult chapter members since he was selected for a scholarship in March 2021.

Heading off to the Air Force Academy already in June, he asked to present at this gathering.  Join us to hear Luke’s message to our chapter.

Luke soloed in an Air Force sponsored flight training program last summer.  Since then, he received our Chapter’s EAA Ray Scholarship to finish off his private certificate with Bode Aviation instruction. Encountering many delays as unfortunately is typical for flight students, Luke is now preparing for his checkride which should occur before he leaves for the Academy.

Each month, these “Chapter Gatherings” offer time to network with programs centered on exchanging experiences and ideas about aviation – airplanes, flying, and flying activities – rather than the chapter business which is addressed in bimonthly Board meetings.
