If you needed another reason to attend Pilot Careers Live in Berlin this coming Saturday, 16th September, this is it. Top pilot training organisation Airways Aviation is offering a place on its global sponsorship to would-be pilots in Germany.
“The world is in need of airline pilots and we understand that for many potential aviators, financial constraints make it difficult to pursue a career as a pilot,” said Romy Howatt, founder of Airways Aviation.
“Following a significant increase in enquiries, we have spent the last few months recruiting aspiring pilots from all over Europe and have had a great response to our seven scholarship initiatives launched to date.
“Training to be a pilot is a complex, challenging and character-building learning experience which is why our course syllabus not only covers the demanding technical requirements of pilot training, but also includes personal and professional development at every stage of the process.
“Pilots Careers Live Berlin is the ideal event for us to announce this opportunity for would-be pilots in Germany to train to be part of the next generation of top airline pilots.”
Before 16 November this year, interested applicants will need to register and complete an online application form, confirm they have had an EASA medical and indicate when they are looking to start their training.
Airways Aviation will then invite a number of candidates to its headquarters in Oxford, United Kingdom, to take the industry-standard COMPASS test, for which they will need to pay a €50 administration fee. Once the test results are produced only the top-scoring candidates will be invited to complete a bespoke application form to apply for the scholarship programme, valued at €40,000.
The scholarship process will be rigorous, involving a written English test and a panel interview in Oxford. The successful applicants will be notified by the end of January 2018 with a view to starting their pilot training as early as March 2018.
