TAG Farnborough Airport launches its Flying Scholarship 2018

TAG Farnborough Airport has today launched the TAG Flying Scholarship 2018 scheme, which will grant one young person a scholarship. Its aim is to support individuals who might otherwise not have the necessary resources to gain flying experience and achieve their Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL).

Over the past decade, scholarship recipients have progressed to a variety of professional roles within the aviation industry such as commercial airline pilot. Now in its 11th year, the program engages schools and colleges within the local area to inform and educate about aviation.

Brandon O’Reilly, CEO at TAG Farnborough Airport, said, “We are keen to encourage young people to not only become involved in the world of aviation but also reach their full potential and are extremely proud to support this initiative through our community engagement.”

Last year’s winner, Leo Tang, was able to undergo flight training at Phoenix Aviation’s base in Lee-on-the-Solent and was awarded his PPL in autumn 2017. Commenting on his achievement, Tang said, "I would like to thank TAG Farnborough Airport for providing me with this fantastic opportunity. My ultimate goal has always been to pursue a career within the aviation industry, to become a professional pilot and qualify as a flying instructor, allowing me to pass on my skills to the next generation of young flying enthusiasts. The support of the Flying Scholarship has been invaluable, allowing me to make my dreams a reality."

Applicants must be at least 17 years old on June 1, 2018. Further information is available on The Honourable Company of Air Pilots’ website.
