The Vintage Aircraft Club has launched the 2023 Liz Inwood Taildragger Scholarship to help one young pilot to convert onto a tailwheel aircraft.

“We are pleased to say we have increased the scholarship to £1,000 for the recipient to use for taildragger conversion,” said a statement from the Vintage Aircraft Club (VAC).

The VAC Taildragger Scholarship, established in memory of the late Tiger Moth pilot and flying instructor Liz Inwood, is offered annually to a licence holder under the age of 35. The successful recipient is offered five hours flying to assist in transitioning from flying nosewheel aircraft to tailwheel heritage types.

The applicant must be the holder of a current PPL, NPPL or LAPL, with 100 hours total flying time of which at least 50 hours are as a pilot in command completed at the time of application. Applications opened on 1 July 2023 and will close on 31 August 2023.
