Aviation South West open fully funded scholarship applications

Exeter-based training provider Aviation South West are welcoming applications for their fully funded 203 DCT Scholarship Programme, intended to take a successful candidate “from zero experience to commercial pilot”.

Covering both UK CAA and EASA licenses, tuition will commence at Aviation South West’s facility at Exeter International Airport (EGTE) before concluding at Malta International Airport (LMML), where the EASA license will be awarded. A total of 227 hours of flight training are provided and the entire process is estimated to take around 12-18 months.

We are aware that the cost of flight training prevents many young people from entering this profession, so are offering this once in a lifetime opportunity to enable them to achieve their dreams,” explained a spokesperson from Aviation South West.

The DCT Scholarship is open to those aged between 17 and 25 “with little or no flight experience and up to a maximum of five flight hours logged,” although candidates must possess the right to live and work in the UK.

Aviation South West was founded at Exeter International Airport in 1999 and “many lessons at [the] aviation school are geared towards those who wish to obtain a commercial license,” typically including instruction on aircraft types such as the PA-28 Warrior and the PA-28R Arrow. ATPL ground school classes are also conducted onsite. A secondary location in Malta also allows students to “take advantage of the great weather on offer all year round”.

Applications close at midday on 31 May 2023, and interviews will commence on 5 June 2023. The successful candidate will commence training on August 1, and the entire course must be completed by March 2025.
