Flying Scholarship

2025 Flying Scholarship

Following on from the success of last years flying scholarship, ACS Aviation has announced they will be running the scholarship for a sixth year in 2025, adding to the schools well-established and highly successful Flight Instructor Sponsorship scheme. The majority of UK Airlines are actively recruiting where over 15000 openings for airline and commercial pilots are projected each year, on average, over the next decade. There is no better time to commence training towards becoming a commercial airline pilot! This scholarship opportunity is supported by Bose Aviation!

The winners of the ACS Aviation scholarship will receive 10 hours of flight training in the brand new Tecnam P-Mentor aircraft, towards a Private Pilots Licence in a supervised environment within a consolidated period, 12 months membership and a Bose A30 Aviation Headset. ACS Aviation will grant scholarships with the aim of supporting individuals who might otherwise not have the necessary resources to gain flying experience and ultimately achieve their Private Pilots Licence (PPL).
ACS Aviation will award two Flying Scholarships worth over £5000 each which will cover all aspects of training up to licence issue for a candidate who is prepared to dedicate a part of the summer to training towards a Private Pilots Licence (PPL). Providing 10 hours of flying training, these scholarships can take a candidate with little or no experience to flying an aircraft solo during a consolidated period in the summer of 2025. The scholarship will allow students to progress onto a variety of professional roles within the aviation industry such as commercial airline pilot.

We are thrilled to be running the scholarship awards for a 6th consecutive year! These help young men and woman take important steps toward reaching their aviation goals, A special thanks also to our training partners and sponsors for supporting us with Scotland's Pilot Careers and Flight Training Seminar - 2025
