FAA Announces Grants for Aviation Careers

- Washington D.C. USA.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) today issued a Federal Register Notice announcing the Aircraft Pilots Workforce Development Grant Program. The program will expand the pilot workforce and will help high school students receive training to become aerospace engineers or unmanned aircraft systems operators. The program also prepares teachers to train students for jobs in the aviation industry.  

In Fiscal Year 2020, Congress appropriated $5 million to create and deliver a training curriculum to address the projected shortages of aircraft pilots. Eligible groups may apply for grants from $25,000 to $500,000. Potential applicants are encouraged to visit the program website. The FAA will accept public comments on the Federal Register Notice until September 24, 2020.
