Cotswold Airport has launched its 2017 flying scholarships with an increase in the number of flying hours.
“To mark the 10 year anniversary of the Cotswold Airport Aviation Scholarship, we are increasing the flying hours to 10 hours over 10 days,” said Suzannah Harvey of Cotswold Airport. “The Scholarship will run for two weeks over the summer holidays, Monday 31 July until Friday 11 August 2017. Previously the Scholarship has been over the Easter holidays but can be limiting for potential applicants as they have to study for their upcoming exams.”
If you are interested, the window for applications will close on 19th March 2017. The Airport will then be in touch if you have been successful.
The Cotswold Airport Aviation Scholarship was introduced in 2007. It provides young adults from the ages of 14–18 years living in the Gloucestershire / Wiltshire / Oxfordshire/ Berkshire area, the opportunity to experience all career options available within the aviation sector.
Throughout the Scholarship, scholars will receive aviation ground school, flying lessons in a range of different aircraft, experience at first-hand the work of air traffic controllers, Airport Operations and engineers, whilst receiving guidance from aviation professionals whilst visiting blue chip organisations such as Rolls-Royce and a nearby Commercial Airport.
