Helicentre announces Bristow CPL(H) scholarship

Bristow Helicopters S92

A fully-funded 35-hour modular CPL(H) Bristow Scholarship is available from Helicentre Aviation.

The joint initiative is driven by both companies’ pro-active approach to recruitment, attracting fresh talent to industry, and helping stand-out individuals progress into careers which include Oil & Gas and SAR.

Helicentre’s scholarship programme is now in its eighth year and was originally created by Helicentre to meet its own recruitment needs.

Graduates of the programme, through initial employment as flight instructors, have since gone onto a variety of offshore and onshore roles including Oil & Gas, Utility and HEMS.

Bristow Helicopters UK operates multi-engine IFR passenger transport in support of the Oil & Gas Industry, and Search and Rescue missions on behalf of Her Majesty’s Coastguard.

The winner of the Bristow Scholarship will receive full funding of their 35-hour modular CPL(H) course from Helicentre, but will also benefit from access to Bristow’s expertise, being individually mentored with opportunities to see the operation and develop the skills and attributes required of an offshore helicopter pilot.

With Bristow actively participating in Helicentre’s 2019 selection process, and the addition of yet another scholarship to the existing CPL(H), FI(H) and part-funded scholarships on offer, the calibre and performance of applicants is expected to be extremely high.

Applicants for the 2019 Bristow CPL(H) Scholarship must have obtained their PPL(H) at Helicentre Aviation Academy. Full eligibility criteria and timescales for selection will be released shortly.
