Scholarship Winner

Kelli O'Donnell

Kelli is a Single Engine Land (ASEL) and a Seaplane pilot (ASES).  She is also a SCUBA diver and a Fisheries Biologist who works for NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).  While working on her seaplane license, she was surprised to learn that this license does not require any safety training specific to flying over and landing on the water. Kelli will be using this scholarship money to attend the Seaplane Safety Institute to complete Underwater Egress Training to make her a safer, more proficient seaplane pilot.
