Now in its fourth year, The Sir Geoffrey de Havilland Flying Scholarship sponsored by The Worshipful Company of Coachmakers and Coach Harness Makers, is open for applications for the 2017 award

The Coachmakers Company is a City of London Livery Company actively investing in young people and offering a range of scholarships to people looking to further their interests and careers in the Automotive, Aerospace and Coach Making industries.

The scholarships focus on training and education in technical skills such as initial training, professional engineering licences and university degrees at Bachelor, Masters and PhD levels.

People from 18 up to 30 years of age, are now being invited to apply for the scholarship. Applicants must be residents of the UK and not previously been awarded any such bursary.

The aim is to make a significant difference to the applicants’ opportunity to learn to fly. No previous flying experience is required although evidence of a keen interest in aviation is a necessity.

This scholarship will fund one half of the cost of the standard hours training required for a Private Pilot’s Licence. Accordingly the scholarship value is approximately £4,500 and is to be match-funded by the successful scholarship winner on an hours flown basis.

The Sir Geoffrey de Havilland scholarship is open for applications from 1st April to 1st July 2017
