Scholarship Winner

Leonia Hunt

Leonia Hunt is working on her Certified Flight Instructor Instrument (CFII) rating.  She is also in her second year of graduate school at Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) where she is studying Aviation Human Factors.

Leonia’s ultimate goal is to be an international airline captain. She believes that her education in Aviation Human Factors will make her an even more valued aviation professional.   She has been accepted by Republic Airways in the RJET cadet program, meaning that when she has the required piloting hours, she will start training as a first officer and will be flying for them.

Leonia earned an Amelia Earhart scholarship last year for her CFI rating.
