The Light Aircraft Association (LAA) has increased the number of young pilots being offered bursaries to five for its 2018-2019 Armstrong-Isaacs programme.
The five 2018-2019 Armstrong-Isaacs Bursaries are open to any pilot under the age of 30 currently in UK PPL training, contributing up to £1,500 to assist in the completion of their course.
The funds will be lodged with the flying school of their choice and must be used exclusively for flying training or flight examinations.
To qualify for these bursaries the young pilots are required to reach ‘first solo’ standard, completed a minimum of two hours solo training and have the necessary medical and ground qualifications to continue their training.
“These funds offer support to young pilots who have already demonstrated their commitment to flying, by getting to solo standard at their own expense,” said LAA CEO and Armstrong-Isaacs trustee Steve Slater.
“However, the latter stages of the PPL are particularly financially challenging, with longer cross-country flights requiring greater outlay in aircraft rental costs. These bursaries may enable students to complete their training.”
Applications are now open. Download the application form from the LAA website: www.lightaircraftassociation.co.uk
The final date for applications to be received is Monday 26 November 2018. Successful recipients will be contacted in early 2019 following a selection process.
