Reva Jogdand, a junior at Austin High School, was one of 26 students picked from more than 500 applicants nationwide to attend the 2023 Commander of Naval Air Forces Flight Academy this summer. The scholarship value is more than $26,000 for the eight week program.
The selection process for the flight academy is extensive. Jogdand needed a 3.5 GPA and needed to pass the aviation qualifying test and a TSA security background check. She also needed to complete and pass a flight physical, several subtests and she needed a FAA pilot certification to fly among other requirements.
Jogdand says she wants to be a pilot after she finishes her education.
