White Salmon teen lands student pilot scholarship

16-year-old qualifies by passing aviation test with high scores.

The Columbia Gorge Aviation Association recently announced that White Salmon teenager Tyler Zuck is the recipient of its annual student pilot scholarship.

To qualify for the scholarship, a high school-age student must have earned high test scores on the Federal Aviation Administration's written portion of the Private Pilot Airplane (PAR) exam.

Zuck, who completed the test during the spring of 2001, is a home-schooled high school junior. He is employed by Flightline Services at the Hood River Airport.

The 16-year-old also is active in his church youth group and has a wide range of interests, which include nature photography, digital imaging and animation, backpacking, travel and, as he would say, "all things related to math, science and computer technology."

He is the son of Greg and Linda Zuck, White Salmon.
