£100,000 of helicopter training scholarships 18.04.2019
Two scholarships for a helicopter Commercial Pilot Licence, one including a flight instructor rating, valued at £100,000 have been awarded by Helicentre Aviation Academy based at Leicester Airport.
Callum Tinnion, on the right in the photo, is one of the winners. He completed his PPL(H) last year and has just over 70 hours. This is the first ever sponsorship offered by Helicentre and it covers the full cost of all required flying from hour building to commercial ground and flight training, as well as the Flight Instructor course. Training will be undertaken in-house on a variety of helicopter types including the Guimbal Cabri G2.
“The Sponsorship will allow me to focus all my energy into what I have wanted to do for as long as I can remember,” said Callum. Full-time employment has been guaranteed for Callum on completion of training as part of the award with Helicentre.
Joe Hynes received the CPL(H) Scholarship award which funds training through to Commercial Pilot Licence, including all hour-building.
“There are no words to fully describe winning the scholarship” said Joe. “It has proven to me that anything is possible with the right attitude and support, and I am looking forward to working closely with Helicentre.” Joe plans to continue onto his Flight Instructor training after gaining his CPL(H).
Helicentre Aviation Academy will be awarding two further scholarships in 2016 and currently seeking suitable applicants who can meet the entry criteria by 30 September 2016. Interested? Go to: www.helicopterscholarships.com0
