ALEA corporate member Night Flight Concepts has awarded a night vision goggle scholarship to WG #1290 Natalie Jones, currently flying concrete and steel to a remote jungle site in support of a dam building project for the main water supply to the city of Manila. "This scholarship will inevitably aid me in becoming a safer and more competent pilot. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity," says Jones.

The scholarship will provide Jones an initial NVG endorsement for a flight position in airborne law enforcement, EMS, or government agencies.
