I went to the EAA board meeting, as Cherish had asked me to back her up on the sponsorship proposal. We've been talking about sponsoring kids for the ground school, which is $400, so several kids at a time isn't a massive financial risk (they also talked about spending >$4000 on racking for the hangar). Basically I'd rather do something and get it wrong than do nothing, and I pointed out that, for example, $2000 of flight training (should be enough to solo a new pilot) isn't really useful to a 16 year old. It's been decided to try a couple of iterations to see how it works out.
