2018 is the fifth year of The Worshipful Company of Coachmakers and Coach Harness Makers scholarship in memory of Sir Geoffrey de Havilland and applications close on July 1

The scholarship is a flying award, and appropriately for its title the training will take place in the classic and vintage de Havilland DH82A Tiger Moths of the Cambridge Flying Group at Cambridge Airport.

The scholarship invites applications from young people from 18 years up to 30 years of age, resident in the UK who have not previously been awarded any such bursary.

The aim is to make a significant difference to the applicants opportunity to learn to fly and create the opportunity to train in such an iconic vintage aeroplane as the Tiger Moth whose lessons in flying skills are as appropriate in 2018 as when the aeroplane first flew in 1931.

No previous flying experience is required although evidence of a keen interest in aviation is a necessity.

To celebrate the 5th anniversary, this year’s scholarship will fund 75% of the cost of the standard hours training required for a Private Pilots Licence with only 25% to be funded on an hours flown basis by this year’s successful Coachmakers Flying Scholarship winner.

CLOSING DATE

July 1 2018: Closed for applications
