Two More Aviation Students Awarded Global Scholarships


Two Pennsylvania College of Technology students were among only seven selected internationally to receive a Bill Sanderson Aviation Maintenance Technology Scholarship from Helicopter Association International’s Technical Committee.

Max K. Wundschock, of Perkasie, and Steven S. Mellott, of State College, juniors in the college’s four-year aviation maintenance technology major, were recently awarded scholarships that provide a tuition waiver for manufacturing training schools and a stipend to offset expenses.

Awarded training scholarships from the Helicopter Association International were Steven S. Mellott, State College, left, and Max K. Wundschock, Perkasie, juniors in Penn College’s aviation maintenance technology major.

Wundschock, the first-place winner, will attend the Eurocopter EC-135 helicopter school. Mellott, who earned second-place honors, will attend the Bell 206 helicopter school. In addition to the scholarships, worth a total of $11,000, the students each received a one-year HAI membership and registration waiver for the 2014 Heli-Expo next March in Orlando, Fla.

Mellott and Wundschock join six other Penn College students honored by HAI in the past eight years: Christopher M. Gayman and Justin A. Eshleman (2010), Gregory B. Gilliland (2008), Wesley C. Miller (2007), Jason M. Smith (2006) and Kirk T. Beres (2004). Total HAI scholarship amounts awarded to those students exceed $40,000.
