Aero Club of Washington News

On June 13, 2018, the Aero Club of Washington was pleased to host DOT Secretary Elaine Chao, in her first appearance at the Club. There were over 400 Club members and guests at this event, including many government guests. The highlight of the luncheon was Secretary Chao’s participation in the presentation of the Aero Club Foundation’s first scholarship to Ms. J’la Carroll, a graduating senior at Cardozo’s TransSTEM Academy. Ms. Carroll will be attending Morgan State University this fall to study engineering, with a focus in aviation.

The Aero Club Foundation of Washington has established a scholarship program to provide financial assistance to students enrolled in a District of Columbia public or public charter high school who demonstrate a passion for aviation with the intent to pursue an education and career in aviation or aerospace and have a financial need for scholarship assistance. The Aero Club and the Foundation are very grateful to their members and partners in the aviation community, who have supported the Foundation and its activities for many years.
