The Lyons Aviation Foundation Scholarship Program is merit based.  The minimum scholarship amount is $1500.  The maximum amount is the full cost of a Private Pilots course.  (If funding is sufficient).   Each year the board determines the number of recipients (minimum of 1) and the value of each scholarship.  Funding available factors into these decisions.  

The Lyons family has long ties to aviation and we desire to give back.
