The application window is now open for a host of flying scholarships from the Honourable Company of Air Pilots (HCAP).
HCAP said, “These scholarships cover all aspects of training up to licence issue for a candidate who is prepared to dedicate a considerable part of the summer to gaining their PPL.
“Providing up to 45 hours of flying training, these scholarships can take a candidate with little or no experience to completion of their flying licence during the course of the summer; alternatively they can finish off someone who is already partially trained.
“The scholarships are awarded entirely on merit. Applications are welcome from candidates worldwide – international candidates should be aware that, if called to interview, the candidate must make their own arrangements to attend an interview in person in London. Training must be take place at a UK flying school.”
Applications for the PPL flying scholarships must be received by HCAP by 20 February 2020. Interviews will be in London on 23-24 April 2020. Applicants must be 17 or over on 1 June 2020.
Other scholarships on offer from HCAP include week-long residential gliding scholarships and flight instructor training.
