South Surrey pilot flying high after aviation honour

Sean Flynn has been awarded the prestigious Anderson Family Scholarship by the British Columbia Aviation Council.

A South Surrey resident has been awarded a prestigious aviation scholarship by the British Columbia Aviation Council.

Sean Flynn, 17, was awarded the Anderson Family Scholarship – valued at $5,000 – in June, when he was 16. The BCAC scholarship for B.C. pilots between the ages of 16-19 will assist Flynn as he completes his training.

Flynn, who began flying in March 2014 and trains at the Pacific Flying Club in Delta, said he has always been interested in flying, as long as he can remember.

“I remember going to the airport with my dad when I was three years old, and ever since then, I’ve been locked in with aviation,” Flynn said.
