Flexwing Instructor Bursary
Recently there has been a drop in the number of instructors teaching on flexwing microlights and so to encourage more instructors we are offering to part fund a course for a flexwing instructor. We need to be certain that when the course is completed the new instructor will go on to use the qualification to teach in flexwing aircraft, so there are pre-course requirements that must be met.
The applicant must have the support of an existing microlight school that will offer to provide employment as a flexwing instructor having completed the course. The school must be able to provide the necessary supervision that a new instructor needs to develop. It is up to the applicant to put this arrangement in place before we can consider any application.
We envisage that the award, £2,000, would cover about half of the course fee. It is the applicant’s responsibility to fund the rest of the fee.
