Helicentre’s pilot scholarships deadline is coming up

Helicentre scholarshipJust in case you missed it first time around, there are a number of scholarships available from Helicentre Aviation Academy for pilot training – and the deadline is 31 December 2020.

Helicentre extended the deadline of its 2020 Professional Helicopter Pilot Scholarship Programme because of the original lockdown. The scholarships include a fully-funded modular Commercial Pilot’s Licence, a Flight Instructor Course, and a number of part-funded sponsorships worth over £150,000 in total.

The programme is open to all Helicentre Aviation students who obtain their PPL(H) at the Academy before the deadline.

The scholarship programme, which has been hugely successful in identifying stand-out future helicopter pilots, is now in its eighth year.

It was originally designed to meet the company’s ongoing requirement for suitably qualified flight crew, training and developing them in-house for Commercial Air Transport and Flight Training roles, but it quickly formed part of the natural crew supply chain to industry, with previous scholarship winners moving into Oil and Gas, HEMS, and other onshore roles.

Earlier this year Helicentre Aviation announced the award of its 2019 scholarships. Tom Barnard from London received a fully-funded Commercial Pilot (CPL) Scholarship, and Sam Wyss from Lichfield was awarded a Flight Instructor (FI) scholarship.

For the first time, a brand new “Bristow” CPL(H) Scholarship was awarded to James Lee from Birmingham, strengthening the industry partnership Helicentre Aviation and Bristow Helicopters formed last year.
