Over £1.2m in bursary funds available to students

Hot on the heels of the announcement that Leading Edge Aviation were offering £150,000 in cadet bursaries, further approved training providers have launched schemes this week ahead of Pilot Careers Live on 9 April.

L3Harris Airline Academy announced 10 bursaries each worth £10,000 for students on 5 April and FTA Global followed that with an announcement of a new partnership with Fantasy Wings, the programme that gives Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people and Women a platform to enter and excel in the Aviation industry or become commercial airline pilots. This scheme will offer one bursary per year to one Fantasy Wings participant for £10,000 off a Dual Licence integrated ATPL Course at FTA, known as the ‘FTA Fantasy Wings Bursary’.

On Wednesday 6 April Gloucester-based Skyborne Airline Academy announced a massive £1m worth of bursaries. The first 100 people to enroll on their CAA Integrated ATPL Programme will receive a £10,000 bursary, valid for courses starting between 1 May and 30 September 2022.
