VAC Liz In­wood schol­ar­ship boost

Pilot - - PILOT NOTES -

The Vin­tage Air­craft Club’s Liz In­wood tail­drag­ger schol­ar­ship has re­ceived a £1,500 do­na­tion from the Light Air­craft As­so­ci­a­tion’s Ed­u­ca­tional Trust. The schol­ar­ship was set up in mem­ory of Liz In­wood, Tiger Moth pi­lot and in­struc­tor, by the VAC and the In­wood es­tate, to give young pi­lots the op­por­tu­nity to take their PPL a lit­tle fur­ther and con­vert from nose­wheel to older tail­wheel types.

The VAC said, ‘We are ex­tremely grate­ful to the LAA for its gen­er­ous do­na­tion which will en­sure the next gen­er­a­tion of tail­drag­ger pi­lots is given a train­ing op­por­tu­nity en­abling them to fly the type of air­craft they would typ­i­cally see at VAC events.’
