The Air League has announce the launch of a 12-hour powered flying scholarship sponsored by SkyDemon.
Under The Air League’s powered scholarship programme, this award will enable a young person to reach solo standard and enjoy the responsibility and achievement of solo flight. The scholar will be encouraged to undertake their training on a residential basis over the course of week at one of three approved training providers to ensure consistency in their learning. The first successful SkyDemon sponsored scholar will complete their training in summer 2018.
Since its inception over nine years ago, SkyDemon has become one of Europe’s most popular and successful aviation solutions for tablet-based moving map navigation and flight planning. SkyDemon’s success in this area has led to the sponsoring of various good causes, the latest of which is targeted at young people through the work of the Air League.
In 2017 Tim Dawson of SkyDemon was presented the Jeffrey Quill Medal for an outstanding contribution to flight safety and air-mindedness by The Air League’s Patron, HRH Prince Philip The Duke of Edinburgh at the Air League’s Annual Reception held at St James’ Palace.
The Air League Trust is the UK’s largest provider of flying scholarships and over the past decade, with scholarships worth more than £2 million having been allocated to young people across the UK. The Air League looks for individuals that have a flair and passion for aviation, and determination to succeed.
