Ultimate High is offering a scholarship for a General Aviation Upset Recovery Training (UPRT) course at Goodwood Aerodrome. It’s named after Rob Wildeboer, the Goodwood Flying School Manager who died last July after a sudden illness.
The Ultimate High Rob Wildeboer Scholarship is in addition to scholarships being offered by Goodwood Aerodrome.
Mark Greenfield of Ultimate High said, “Rob joined Goodwood straight from school aged 16, initially as an aircraft engineering apprentice, making his way to Aviation General Manager before managing the Goodwood Flying School. He was a one-man institution at the Aerodrome, loved by all who came into contact with him and absolutely integral to everything done through the aviation business.”
The UPRT course, valued at £795, helps pilots avoid, recognise and recover from flight upsets resulting from Loss Of Control In Flight, the largest single challenge in General Aviation. It comprises two flights of approximately 50-55 minutes, three hours of ground school and is usually completed in one day.
Applicants must be at least 16 years old and hold the appropriate aviation medical. The scholarship is open to PPL holders and anyone part-way through training, or about to start. The scholarship, which Ultimate High hopes to repeat annually, is only available for training at Ultimate High to be carried out during 2022.
Closing date for applications is 15 June 2022. All applicants agree to abide by the decision of the selection panel.
