Only three weeks left to apply

The scholarship application deadline is only three weeks away, which means you don’t have much time left to get your application forms sent in to us!

The application form, which can be downloaded from the CPL(H) tab at the top of our website, has to be either sent to us in the post or handed in, in person by Saturday 31st March. If you would like to know more about how the scholarship application and selection process works, call a member of our Operations Team today on 0116 259 1834.

Every year the standard of applicants is exceptionally high, making the selection process for just one aspiring pilot for each Scholarship incredibly difficult.

Our most recent scholarship winner, Janine from Northants, who was awarded our 2017 Commercial Pilots Licence (H) Scholarship has been studying hard for her ATPL(H) Theoretical Knowledge exams and set to complete these by October, which will enable her to complete any hour building that’s left, followed by the CPL(H) course which will see her become a Commercial Pilot before the end of 2018.

The CPL(H) Scholarship covers the entire cost of the ATPL(H) theoretical knowledge course, all post-PPL(H) hour building (including the chance to fly some hours at our Winter Haven base in Florida) and the complete CPL(H) modular flying course. In order to be eligible for the CPL(H) Scholarship, applicants must submit a fully completed application form by 31st March 2018 and have completed their Private Pilots Licence with us at Helicentre Aviation by 30th September. We do offer a comprehensive PPL(H) course package, which includes everything you need to train and pass your PPL(H). For more information about the costs and what’s included in the package, call a member of our Operations team today on 0116 259 1834.

The FI(H) Scholarship covers the cost of our EASA approved Flight Instructor Certificate Course and provides an immediate route into full time instructing work, here at Helicentre Aviation.

We are constantly recruiting new instructors and this was our initial motivation for creating the FI(H) Scholarship; it is the most valuable licensing add-on you can get in terms of the career opportunities it creates. In order to be eligible for this scholarship, applicants must have completed their CPL(H) course with us at Helicentre Aviation by 30th September and submitted a fully completed application form by 31st March 2018.

If you haven’t yet started your PPL(H) training, don’t worry, there is still time. We regularly run free Career Seminars, which provide a great insight into the available training options including our Scholarship Programmes and the career pathways, that could lead you to fulfilling your goals and swiftly get you working as a professional Helicopter Pilot.

Career Seminar bookings can be made online, alternatively, call a member of our Operations Team on 0116 259 0186.
