EAA/Daher Mark 10 Years Of Young Eagles International Scholarship

Latest Recipients Introduced At AirVenture

A successful trans-Atlantic partnership is marking its 10th year of existence as the EAA/Daher Young Eagles International Internship’s two latest recipients participate in this week’s EAA Oshkosh AirVenture fly-in.

The joint program enables two selectees annually to benefit from a five-week internship at the Daher Airplane Business Unit’s facility in Tarbes, France, followed by a week assisting Daher during the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh event. All travel, lodging, and work experience is included, as well as side visits to the Airbus final assembly facility and Aeroscopia Museum in Toulouse, France.

“Daher’s commitment provides an incentive for youngsters to explore a variety of career directions within the aviation field, seeing first-hand what their future could be,” said Dave Chaimson, EAA’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. “For a student, nothing is more important: the cultural exchange, the educational opportunities, and the impact on their lives are tremendous.”

Nicolas Chabbert – the Senior Vice President of Daher’s Airplane Business Unit, and President of the U.S.-based SOCATA North America subsidiary – said the Young Eagles International Internship is a “win-win” program for its two sponsors and for the annual selectees. “It provides an opportunity for Daher’s technical, marketing and administrative teams to work with young people representing the culture from a major portion of our customer base,” Chabbert explained. “For the American students, the internship offers an excellent experience abroad, along with hands-on knowledge that could place them on the path to an aviation industry career.”

The 2016 EAA/Daher Young Eagles International Internship recipients are Kristin Sandager from Albert Lea, Minnesota, and Dalton Nonweiler, from Tulsa, Oklahoma – both of whom are attending this week’s EAA Oshkosh AirVenture as part of their experience.

Sandager is a junior at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona, majoring in mechanical engineering with a focus on robotics. She hopes to use her engineering degree in a career concentrated on “problem solving.” Sandager frequently attends EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, and has volunteered in the vintage aircraft area.

Nonweiler is a freshman at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, with a major in mechanical engineering and a minor in aerospace engineering. His focus is on aero-shapes and aero-performance. He already holds a pilot license with commercial, instrument, complex and multi-engine ratings.

“For Kristin and Dalton, we are confident their experience with the Young Eagles International Internship will make a difference in their lives, just as it has for the predecessors,” concluded Daher’s Chabbert. “As of today, we know that 11 of the 18 interns from previous years have jobs in the aerospace sector, the remaining are pursuing academic or other interests.”
