Sheets Receives Scholarship from Grizzly Scenic Air Tours
Luke Sheets recently was awarded the 1st Annual Grizzly Airman Scholarship. Awarded was $500 for Luke’s educational pursuit in aviation. Dave Burke pilot and owner of Grizzly Scenic Air Tours LLC, located at the Ephraim/Gibraltar Airport in northern Door County said he was happy to award Luke the scholarship after witnessing Luke’s hard work training for his instrument rating or IFR. Instrument flight rules (IFR) are regulations and procedures for flying aircraft by referring only to the aircraft instrument panel for navigation. Eager to instill into the young the love of flying, Burke has for years supported the local Young Eagles Program allowing children a chance to fly and felt the scholarship would be the perfect next level of aviation educational support for Door County students.
Grizzly Scenic Air Tours currently offers a wide spectrum of flight instruction at the Ephraim/Gibraltar Airport, but Dave is quick to point out that this scholarship is to aid local students in their aviation goals in whatever way is most helpful. Studying aviation not only involves an instructor and an airplane, but headsets, training manuals, flight planning tools, log books, tests and check rides that are all necessary items for the continuation of safe flight training. Above all safety in flight is first and the fun comes with it.
Dave and the Grizzly Scenic Air Tours staff are looking forward to the day Luke is awarded his IFR rating and are excited to watch where Luke’s aviation aspirations will take him.
Grizzly Scenic Air Tours LLC is located at the Ephraim/Gibraltar Airport in northern Door County featuring scenic airplane rides, aerial photography, custom tours and flight instruction 7 days a week weather permitting.
