Minnesota Aviation Trades Association – Investing In The Future!

Congratulations to NATHAN WURST of Chaska, Minnesota, who was selected to receive the 2019 MATA Scholarship!

Nathan is working on his private pilot certificate at Thunderbird Aviation at Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, and has been accepted at the University of North Dakota John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences beginning this fall. To help pay for his education, Nathan started working as a line service technician at Thunderbird Aviation in the fall of 2018 while a senior in high school. Nathan stated: “I believe in hard work and focus in order to succeed as a pilot. I see the aviation community as bonded over its love of flight… It is a community that I am proud to be a part of for the rest of my life.”
