Are you a post-solo student pilot under 30 years of age. Or do you know someone who is? Any eligible pilots should apply now for the 2021 Armstrong-Isaacs PPL bursary scheme.

Five bursaries of £1,500 are being offered to support young pilots already in training, offering additional funding to help them complete their courses, at a time when all too often, money starts to run out.

The funds will be lodged with the flying school of their choice and must be used exclusively for flying training or flight examinations. To qualify for a bursary a pilot should be under 30 years of age, have completed a minimum of two hours solo training and have gained the necessary medical and ground qualifications to continue their training.

The Armstrong-Isaac’s fund is supported by legacies from former Association luminaries David Armstrong and John Isaacs. The Bursaries offer support to young pilots who have reached the financially challenging latter stages of PPL training, with longer cross-country flights requiring greater outlay in aircraft rental costs. These bursaries have a demonstrated record of allowing students to complete their training, when perhaps they may otherwise have had to suspend or even forego the completion of their course.

Applicants should complete a form which can be downloaded from the LAA website here.

The final date for applications will be Friday 31st December 2021.
