This summer, Arnold will undergo Federal Aviation Administration-certified flight training necessary to achieve a successful solo flight in an appropriate general aviation aircraft. He will receive financial incentive award for his continued training for his private pilot license totaling over $3,200.

It perpetuates their names as the first to fly our country's airplanes in time of war. The order's membership of commissioned, warrant, and flight officer military pilots and WASPs, with its worldwide network and its comprehensive awards program, supports the military services and other aerospace activities.
The awards and scholarship programs of the order and foundation encourage patriotism, integrity, and good character in our nation's youth; military careers as commissioned pilots; safety of flight, and excellence in the performance of military duties.
It will be a busy summer for Arnold, who will be attending the United States Naval Academy Summer Seminar in June. He attended the STEM summer program at the academy in 2013 following his freshman year.
