Following the success of its ‘Bursary 24’ offer during March 2020, VA Airline Training has announced that an additional 24 £500 Bursaries will now be available throughout the months of April and May 2020.
Pilots booking either a VA Airline Pilot Standards Multi-Crew Cooperation (APS MCC) course or a Ryanair Mentored APS MCC will receive a £500 bursary to secure the course for £6,400 including VAT instead of the regular £6,900 course fee.
Announcing the extension of the APS MCC bursary offer Anthony Petteford, Managing Director of VA Airline Training, said: “The current situation is difficult for everyone. We empathise with those pilots who are nearing the final phases of their training but facing flight training delays and additional financial challenges. We will do what we can to support and help them achieve their APS MCC certificate so that they are genuinely airline ready when the recovery does come.”
“VA has always put our customers first: recent examples include the simulator preparation support we provided for Thomas Cook pilots and recently updated in support of our Flybe family. This aligns with the competency refresher training we provided for each of our Ryanair APS Mentored Programme graduates when recruitment slowed last year due to the B737 MAX grounding. Our Graduate Placement Support is there for our graduates in good as well as challenging times such as these.”
