The Aero Club of Pennsylvania was organized in December, 1909 in Philadelphia for the purpose of "educating the public on matters of aeronautics". The club organizes aviation-related seminars, presentations and field-trips, an annual Wright Brothers dinner and a scholarship dinner.

For over 60 years, the Aero Club of Pennsylvania has been awarding aviation training scholarships. Their goal is to encourage and support young men and women with their goals toward an aviation career.

The club also awards aviation scholarships deserving young aviation students, a practice begun in 1938 and enduring to the present day. In 1993, non-profit 501(c)(3) status was obtained for the Aero Club of Pennsylvania Memorial Scholarship Fund.

For 2011, the deadline for scholarship applications is April 30. Applicants must reside in the Philadelphia, Greater Delaware Valley area, which includes Delaware.

For more information, you can reach the Aero Club of Pennsylvania at PO Box 748, Blue Bell, PA 19422, via E-Mail at, or via the organization website,
