Aviation Student Awarded International Helicopter Scholarship


A Pennsylvania College of Technology student was among only eight selected internationally to receive a Bill Sanderson Aviation Maintenance Technology Scholarship from Helicopter Association International’s Technical Committee.

Jeffrey T. Bassler, of New Windsor, Maryland, a senior in Penn College’s four-year aviation maintenance technology major, was recently awarded a scholarship that provides a tuition waiver for a helicopter manufacturer training school and a stipend to offset expenses. Bassler will attend the Honeywell Primus Epic integrated avionics system factory school.
