Helicopter Foundation International wants to remind students interested in becoming helicopter pilots that there is now a little under a month left to get applications in for HFI’s Commercial Helicopter Rating Scholarship – a scholarship specifically geared towards students enrolled in a FAA Part 141 school (or its international equivalent), who wish to become a certified helicopter pilot. Up to four winners will be selected from all qualified applicants, and they will be invited to join us at HELI-EXPO 2012 in Dallas, Texas, from February 11-14, 2012.

In addition to receiving up to $5,000 towards tuition expenses, the scholarship provides a full registration for two to HELI-EXPO 2012, a complimentary one-year HAI membership for the winners, and dinner for two at the Salute to Excellence Awards dinner at HELI-EXPO® courtesy of Helicopter Association International.

For an application or more information about the Commercial Helicopter Rating Scholarship, please visit An electronic form of the application is preferred. Please email to Neatness, completeness and accuracy do count. Additional pages requested must be supplied. The winners are responsible for their own transportation and accommodations at HELI-EXPO 2012.

All applications must be received at HFI by Nov. 30, 2011. Mail to HFI Scholarships, 1635 Prince Street, Alexandria, VA 22314.

HFI’s Commercial Helicopter Rating Scholarship will only be awarded to candidates pursuing a Commercial Rating or international equivalent. A primary determinant will be evidence of the applicant’s interest and determination to work in the helicopter industry.

Any questions or concerns should be directed to the foundation’s vice president/curator, Marty Pociask at or 703-683-4646.
