Two new flying scholarships for 2019 are being offered by the Nick Davidson Memorial Trust charity based at London Biggin Hill Airport.
The scholarships are worth £12,000 each which will provide training to Private Pilot Licence (PPL) standard with 45 hours of flying and a ground school programme of nine subjects, including Air Law and Navigation.
The first scholarship is funded by the family of the late BA Captain Nick Davidson who died in 2012 and the second by Biggin Hill Airport that owns and manages the south London airport.
The 2019 flying scholarship scheme receives co-sponsor support from Shipping & Airlines, Adams Aviation Supply Company and the Bamrah family who own the EFG Flying School at the airport.
Applications are now invited for the two 2019 flying scholarships from men and women between the age of 16 to 26 who aspire to a career as a professional pilot or in a relevant area of the aviation industry.
Applicants must be capable of passing the CAA medical examination and to be available for interview before a selection board at Biggin Hill early next year.
Applicants should provide an up-to-date CV and deliver with it a letter addressed to Captain Gary Merchant, chairman of the selection board, in which the applicant sets out the reasons why he or she should be awarded a scholarship.
Applications can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or sent to Melanie Courtney, Terminal Building, Biggin Hill Airport, Bromley TN16 3BH (marking the envelope ‘NDMFS’).
The closing date for applications is on Friday 30th November 2018.
