(Santa Ana, California—May 9, 2017) Clay Lacy Aviation, the world’s most experienced operator of private jets, has established a scholarship fund to help students attending the Orange Coast College Aviation Science program earn their private, instrument and commercial pilot license. Flight training takes place at the Orange County John Wayne Airport where the college maintains a fleet of five aircraft.
“Flight training is expensive,” said Stanley L. Harriman Ph.D., Program Coordinator and Instructor at Orange Coast College, “and many students need that extra financial assistance to complete their pilot certifications. Clay Lacy’s financial support will enable more students to realize their career aspirations and pursue a career in commercial, business or general aviation.”
Located in Costa Mesa, California, Orange Coast College is a leading two-year institution, with a highly regarded aviation program. Students earn their Associate of Science degree in addition to their private, instrument and commercial pilot licenses. Graduates go on to complete their studies at a four-year university or pursue a certified instructor rating which allows them to teach others to fly. The curriculum prepares them to become professional pilots or pursue a wide variety of other aviation careers. Program information is available online at www.orangecoastcollege.edu.
