Eight youths supported by the Mathioya Constituency Development Fund have completed their aviation lessons and obtained flying permits. 

Mathioya MP Clement Wambugu said the eight had all the skills required by the aviation industry and obtained Private Practice Licences as well as commercial licences, allowing them to fly passenger planes.

Mr Wambugu said the eight students had qualified for aviation studies but their families could not afford the fees hence the CDF support.
