Falcon Flying Group, an aviation training organisation based at London Biggin Hill Airport, has announced the launch of a new scholarship scheme aimed at supporting underprivileged and underrepresented individuals within the aerospace and aviation communities.
The Falcon Flying Fund, established in collaboration with London Biggin Hill Airport, the British School of Aviation, Talent Squared GmbH, and Modul University Vienna, will provide £50,000 in initial funding for the programme.
Anoop Singh Bamrah, Executive Director at Falcon Flying Group, highlighted the importance of providing opportunities to talented individuals who may be hindered by a lack of funding or opportunity. The Falcon Flying Fund aims to restore the balance in the industry and further Falcon’s commitment to supporting the next generation of aerospace and aviation personnel.
Initially, the scholarship scheme will offer support for flight training, theoretical training and examinations, medical referral fees, 20 hours of pre-solo training, remedial training, and flight hour building (up to 25 hours). As the initiative gains momentum, the Falcon Flying Fund plans to expand its support to students across all aspects of STEM, aerospace, and aviation training.
Details about the scheme and the qualifying requirements for the scholarships will be announced in the coming months. The Falcon Flying Fund has committed to providing at least £50,000 for the initial qualifying candidates to help them start their journey in the industry.
Bamrah expressed excitement about the initiative’s future and emphasized the importance of providing opportunities for students who might otherwise miss out on the chance to succeed in the aerospace and aviation fields. With the support of their partners, the Falcon Flying Fund aims to give as many students as possible the opportunity to thrive in the industry.
