Royal Aero Club Trust Bursaries

Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 Royal  Aero Club Trust Flying Bursaries. These bursaries are available to young pilots, aged 14-21,  who have already reached solo standard to enable them to achieve greater competence in their particular air sport. Bursaries of up to £1500 are available to help recipients advance from one recognized level of air sport to the next (for example, gain the bronze badge or XC endorsement). Applications for 2015 bursaries in respect of gliding have to be endorsed by the BGA. These need to be received at the BGA office 10 March 2015. Full details are on the RAeC Trust website at Additionally, in 2015, the Trust may award a number of Follow-On Bursaries. These are available to previous recipients of Flying Bursaries who have now been selected for international competition teams or similar. An upper age limit of 24 applies to the Follow-On bursaries.
