How much does it cost to attend NBB? I don't mean airfare and travel, but the actual cost to get in. Any help would be appreciated. -Gray

Did you look at the NCSA website? It's listed right on there.

Thanks I missed it when I was going over the websites. I did not realize it would cost that much. Is there any kind of financial aid I can get?

I donít think thereís any assistance from NHQ. You might want to consider asking your squadron for help, I asked last year and they paid for half of the cost of a flight academy for me. It never hurts to ask.

Yes there is. Part of the recently announced Youth Aviation Initiative includes funds to help cadets attend NCSAs for the purpose of aviation career exploration (NBB most certainly falls within this realm). You can find more information on that here and here.

The deadline to apply is January 15th, so time is limited.

Additionally, your squadron may be able to provide some limited scholarship funds to help you attend. This is hit or miss as squadron funds can range anywhere from 6 figures to the contents of the change dish.

Finally, since NBB requires you to be 16, then you are now or will shortly be working age. You might want to consider an after school or weekend job to help you save up for this.
