New charity launches
A new aviation charity is aiming to give Scottish youngsters the chance to take to the air.
Take Off seeks to provide flying scholarships of ten hours flying training for young people in Scotland between the ages of sixteen and eighteen.
This summer the organisation will put eight students through the programme at Perth Airport.
The charity is working alongside Perth and Kinross Education Authority, and has also applied for a number of grants to enable it to expand into other areas of Scotland. It is currently seeking sponsorship.
