You are viewing Daedalian Flight Training (DFT) Scholarship Winners

Through the Daedalian Flying Training Scholarship Program (DFT) -(formerly the Cadet Flight Indoctrination Program (CFIP) - LeMay Flight #16 seeks to identify, screen and select up to two eligible applicants for participation in a flight training program designed to enhance their motivation to pursue a career in military aviation. The DFT Scholarship is a four-way partnership of the Daedalian Foundation, LeMay Flight#16, an FAA certified flight school, and the selected candidates. Successful applicants will receive ground and flight training necessary to achieve a solo flight in a general aviation fixed wing aircraft. The candidates’ only out-of-pocket expense is for their FAA Class III physical, which they must complete before solo.

Applicants for the DFT Scholarships must meet the following eligibility criteria: completing the sophomore year of high school or enrolled in an accredited college program; demonstrate the desire and potential to become a military aviator in the armed forces of the United States; and be a U.S. citizen and fluent in English.
