Big­gin Hill and Air BP schol­ar­ships, sim­u­lat­ing ‘up­sets’ in a Sabre­liner

The Trustees of the Nick David­son Me­mo­rial Schol­ar­ship are invit­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from those aged 16-26 who are seek­ing a pro­fes­sional ca­reer in avi­a­tion.

One schol­ar­ship is funded by the fam­ily of the late Bri­tish Air­ways Cap­tain Nick David­son, who died of ter­mi­nal cancer in 2012. The sec­ond is the Big­gin Hill Air­port Award, funded by the own­ers of the air­port, where Nick did his ini­tial pi­lot train­ing. The schol­ar­ships are worth £12,000 apiece and pro­vide train­ing to PPL stan­dard, in­clud­ing 45 hours of fly­ing, ground school and all in­struc­tional books and equip­ment. Co-spon­sors are Ship­ping & Air­lines, Adams Avi­a­tion Sup­ply Com­pany, Poo­ley’s Flight Equip­ment and the Bam­rah fam­ily, who own the EFG Fly­ing School at Big­gin.

Ap­pli­cants must be ca­pa­ble of pass­ing the CAA med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion and be avail­able for in­ter­view by a se­lec­tion board at Big­gin early next year. They should pro­vide an up-to-date CV ac­com­pa­nied by a let­ter ad­dressed to Cap­tain Gary Mer­chant, Chair­man of the se­lec­tion board, set­ting out the rea­sons why they should be awarded a schol­ar­ship. Ap­pli­ca­tions can be emailed to ndmfs@big­gin­hillair­port.com or mailed to: Me­lanie Court­ney, Ter­mi­nal Build­ing, Big­gin Hill Air­port, Brom­ley TN16 3BH, mark­ing the en­ve­lope ‘NDMFS’. The clos­ing date for ap­pli­ca­tions is 30 Novem­ber.
