For more than 8 years, the RAF Association has been running its Flying Scholarship programme for the Air Cadet Organisation (ACO) and the Girls Venture Corps Air Cadets (GVCAC). This year the Association welcomes members of the Air Scouts/ Air Explorer Scouts.
The Flying Scholarship award is presented each year as a thank you to members of the ACO (which includes the Air Training Corps and the Combined Cadet Force), GVCAC and Air Scouts/Air Explorer Scouts for their continuous support to the RAF Association.
Winning candidates are rewarded with a course of 35 hours flight training in a light aircraft, and the course covers all or part of the tuition needed to obtain a National Private Pilot Licence (NPPL). Four runners-up receive 12 hours training each.
To be eligible for the award you need to have been a member of the ACO,GVCAC or Air Scouts/Air Explorer Scouts for at least 12 months plus be over 17 and under 20 on 1st January 2015.
The application form and terms and conditions can be found here.
