Five bursaries of £1,500 each are available to help PPL students with their flight training costs.
The awards, made by the Light Aircraft Association (LAA), are from the Armstrong-Isaacs Fund, set up by David Armstrong, a founder member of the original ULAA in 1947.
Bursaries are awarded to pilots under 30 years of age who are already in training and offers finance to supplement personal funding in the later stages of the course.
Applicants must have reached ‘first solo’ standard and have completed a minimum of five hours solo training, hold a valid medical and should have passed the necessary ground examinations.
The LAA added, “Since UK weather is notoriously fickle, applicants who, but for the weather, would have completed five hours solo may be considered. In such circumstances written confirmation must be provided by the CFI of the training organisation.”
The bursary can only be used for flying training and cannot be used for expenses such as travel or accommodation.
Deadline for applications is 31 December 2023. Apply here
