Falcon Flying Group launches new scholarship scheme

London Biggin Hill Airport-based aviation training organisation, Falcon Flying Group, has launched a new scholarship scheme aimed at supporting underprivileged and underrepresented individuals looking at joining the aviation industry.

Working in collaboration with London Biggin Hill Airport, the British School of Aviation (BSA), Talent Squared GmbH and Modul University Vienna, Falcon Flying Group has established the Falcon Flying Fund, with an initial investment of £50,000 towards the programme.

Anoop Singh Bamrah FRAeS, Executive Director at Falcon Flying Group, said: “Providing opportunities for the next generation of aerospace and aviation personnel is more important now than ever before. Since 1977, Falcon has supported countless engineers and pilots and we now look to further our commitment. We believe that a lack of funding or opportunity should not hinder those with exceptional talent and ability from pursuing their desire to work in this incredible industry. The idea behind the Falcon Flying Fund is to help restore the balance.”

The launch scholarships will provide full funding for PPL training courses, with the academy adding that as the new initiative takes off they will look to expand it further “supporting students across all facets of STEM, aerospace and aviation training”.

Full details of the scheme are due to be published over the next few weeks and interested parties are asked to email [email protected] to express their interest in applying for a scholarship.

“We’re excited about the future of this initiative, and through the support and belief of our partners we intend to provide as many students as possible with an opportunity to thrive in our industry, an opportunity that would ordinarily pass them by,” Bamrah added.
