Minden Soaring Club offering scholarships to gliders

Nevada Appeal staff report

The Minden Soaring Club is offering scholarships to encourage youths between 14 and 21 to learn to fly.

The club this year is offering six $1,000 scholarships to those interested in learning to fly gliders — both novices and those who have already begun training.

The deadline for applications is April 12. Winners will be announced May 1.

Under the law, pilots can solo in a glider at age 14 and obtain their private pilot glider rating at 16.
