Reinaldo Beyer at Sunrise. August, 2000



Sunrise Aviation is pleased to announce the inauguration of the Reinaldo Beyer Aerobatic Scholarship. The annual scholarship will be awarded each year during the month of February. The award honors the memory and accomplishments of Dr. Reinaldo Beyer, physician and pilot; the intent is to foster and support a life-long interest in aerobatic flight.

Reinaldo was a passionate and accomplished aerobatic competition pilot. He began aerobatic training in his native Chile in gliders and began powered aerobatic flight at Sunrise Aviation in 2000. After a brief stint competing in Decathlons Reinaldo purchased a Pitt S2-B, then an Extra 300L. He was very successful in competition and soon reached the Advanced category, where he won consistently. Reinaldo was chosen to be the Team Captain of the US Advanced Aerobatic Team in 2010. He lost his life in 2012 while practicing in a friend's airplane.

The 2014 award has now reached over $4000. The scholarship may be divided among two pilots, at the discretion of the Selection Committee.

Please contact Sunrise Dispatch for application forms by email or telephone at 800 717-4200.
