San Carlos Flight Center is a proud supporter of the Upwind Summer Scholarship Program. Upwind was founded by Flight Center pilots who wanted a way to promote piloting and general aviation, cultivate interest in aviation as a career, and to address the national pilot shortage.  Over the course of the Upwind Summer, one or more high school students are transformed into licensed Private Pilot(s) during the summer between their junior and senior year.

Complete information can be found on the Upwind web site at Please visit the site to learn more about program details, candidate requirements, and the application timeline.
