Scholarship hopeful to spur aviation careers

With a handful of airports in Door and Kewaunee Counties, there are options to get involved in the aviation industry.  The Federal Aviation Administration reported back in 2017 that there were 609,000 pilots, which were down from approximately 827,000 in the 1980s. Bill Roethle from the Rio Creek Aviation Foundation says there are job opportunities available, but you have to put the time and money into it.

Roethle says the financial and time commitment required to get involved in the aviation industry are some of the reasons why many young people are staying away. The Rio Creek Aviation Foundation, which hosts educational programs throughout the year, is offering $1,000 scholarships to students looking at an aviation-related career.
