This was a Discovery Flight for the books! GCA had the honor taking Air Force Veteran Dave S, daughter Shelli, and son-in-law Brent all for a flight in separate airplanes. We think the smiles say it all! Thank you for choosing GCA!


Congratulations Pierce! We love when our students get recognized and receive scholarships!

2023 Aviation training scholarship winner.

Hello, my name is Pierce Richardson, I am a Junior at Rocky Mountain High School. I was born in Tucson Arizona in 2006 to my Mother, Shonda, and my Father, Ryan who is a pilot in the 190th Fighter Squadron in the Idaho Air National Guard. Our family has been doing the military aviation life since before my time. Aviation became my goal when I was eight years old after my first flight in a C-130 simulator, from there the race was on. I decided that I was going to solo at sixteen and gain my PPL at seventeen. Now my goals are coming true due to help from scholarships offered by non-profits such as the No Greater Love Foundation. Besides aviation, I am a varsity track and cross-country athlete, I have worked since I was 14, and I have been building flight simulators since I was 10. With the help of this scholarship, I will be able to make my dreams come true and give back to the community that has helped me so much! Thank you to everyone at the No Greater Love Foundation for considering me for this amazing opportunity!
