***All Donations Are Fully Tax Deductible***

The Eagle Sport Aviation Club was created to help promote sport aviation to individuals who would otherwise be unable to participate in these types of activities without the assistance of our organization. We have successfully opened up the realm of sport aviation to our members because of the generous support of our sponsors and through donations. Through the assistance of various individuals and organizations we are able to provide such amazing opportunities to the young people that join our club.

The Eagle Sport Aviation Club enables access to these individuals through scholarships and lowering operating costs of the aircraft through donations received from generous individuals and organizations.

As a nonprofit charitable organization with tax exempt status under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code all donations made to the Eagle Sport Aviation Club are tax deductible.

We accept monetary donations as well as donations of aircraft, engines, and any other assets which can be utilized within the club. Please feel free to contact us for further details, information, and requests.

  • Acquisition of a golf cart or similar vehicle to be used to tow gliders at Pierson Airport

ESA has a series of specific scholarships for our current of future members. Donations can be made towards a specific scholarship listed here or towards a general scholarship fund.

Randy Gagne – Sport Aviation Club Fun

The Sport Aviation Club at Embry-Riddle is an official University Student Club and donations that you allocate to this fund directly benefit undergraduate students at ERAU. Every dollar provided goes directly towards an undergraduate scholarship to be used for any flying activity within the club. You may choose to have your donation used to sponsor the membership fee of a new student or applied towards flying in a specific division of the club: aerobatics, tailwheel, or soaring.

Your donations Work

Over $15,000 in flight scholarships were undergraduate student members who used them compete in aerobatics, earn their tailwheel endorsements, earn a private, commercial, and flight instructor glider certificate or simply enhance their overall flight experience and skills with the club.

U.S. National Aerobatic Championships

Each year ESA has several members well qualified to participate and compete at the United States National Aerobatic Championships hosted in Sherman/Denison, Texas. Expensive ferry cost, transportation planning, accommodation prices, and operation costs make it a continued challenge to support members to participate at this fun and unique competition. All funds contributed towards the U.S. Nationals will serve to support members to experience the national championship.

Keystone Competition

Each year the Eagle Sport Aviation Club attempts to host both the first as well as last Regional Aerobatic Competition for the Southeast United States. These contests public events and are supported and in accordance with the International Aerobatic Club (IAC). Hosting these contests not only require many hours of volunteer work, coordination, and planning but also a great financial support from individuals, organizations, and the local communities. Funds contributed to the Keystone Competition will be used to host the next contests at Keystone Heights Airpark in Florida.
