Our Links Page: Helpful for School Projects!

We received a very nice email from Elizabeth about her daughter, Peyton, utilizing our links page for her World War II Project.

Hi,

My daughter Peyton has been working on her world war II project for the past few days. She is focusing on aviation & war planes used during this time. (Her dream is one day to be a pilot)! We started to do some research on the history of planes and aviation itself, luckily we found your page https://hoxton.com/links/. It was so helpful! Thank you so much for that :)!

In return, Peyton wanted to share with you another great resource she found https://www.stratosjets.com/aircraft-jets-world-war-ii/. It lists all of the aircrafts and jets used in WWII. She was thinking it would make an excellent addition to your page – especially for kids like herself! What do you think?

Whether you add it or not – we did want to say thank you for your resources. She really enjoyed learning more about aviation. If you do add it – please let me know. Peyton will be so excited and I’m sure she’ll show her classmates and teacher.

Thanks again!
Elizabeth

Good luck, Peyton! We sincerely hope you join the illustrious ranks of female pilots one day.

The Hoxton Agency Award Aviation Scholarship to Local Student

Leesburg, Va… The first scholarship from the Aviation Education and Career Expo has been presented to Scott Bell of Loudoun County, Virginia. The scholarship, in the amount of $2,000, was co-funded by ProJet Aviation and The Hoxton Agency. Bell was awarded the scholarship in response to an essay contest about why he wanted to pursue a career in the aviation industry. An excerpt of his essay is outlined below:

“I like aviation because it provides a different perspective of the world that no other career can offer – it will take me places, both physically and mentally. I am attracted to the excitement of traveling to new places and expanding my view of the world and its people. I also like aviation because it combines physics and technology; I like complex machinery and the systems that keep them operating. I want to become a flight instructor; teaching is a way for me to share knowledge with others and share the exciting field of aviation while refining my skills.”
