Flexwing Instructor Bursary
In recent years there has been a drop in the number of instructors teaching on flexwing microlights To encourage more instructors, we are offering to part fund a course for a flexwing instructor. We expect 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 employment to the new flexwing instructor. 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.
For the financial year 2022/23 (which runs September 2022 to August 2023) there are 8 bursaries of up to £1000 available. It is the applicant’s responsibility to fund the rest of the course fees. All bursaries are discretionary and subject to an offer being made.
