Ultimate Aerobatics are extending their deadline for aerobatic scholarship applicants.
Due to a very high demand and to give more young pilots the chance to compete for a place on their aerobatic scholarship, Ultimate Aerobatics are extending the application deadline to the 24 March.
New for 2019 the scholarship will give two young pilots the chance to gain five hour’s worth of aerobatic flight training allowing them to be able to compete at British Aerobatic competitions.
Expert training will be given by instructors who have achieved British champion status in Ultimate Aerobatics class leading Pitts Special.
These scholarships are intended to help individuals develop aerobatic flying skills with an aim that they will enter British Aerobatics competitions. The training itself might be for the issue of an aerobatic rating or it might be to further develop previous aerobatic experience.
Successful candidates will be expected to participate in a British Aerobatics Club event (or higher depending on previous experience) in 2019, which could be with a safety pilot.
Applicants must be UK residents. There is no age limit, although it is likely, much like with Air League Bursaries, that the scholarship(s) will go to applicants under 35. Please don’t let this put you off though, as the panel will judge each application on its merits.
They will review what the individual has already done to progress their own flying; the individual’s interest in Aerobatics; and, what they are intending to do following the award of the scholarship.
Applicants will be expected to name a referee; this is likely to be a flying instructor but could be someone else who knows your flying. Please ask your referee if they are happy to do this before applying!
At the discretion of the panel, further assessment may be required. This will not require any previous aerobatic knowledge.
