Helicentre Aviation to Fund £250,000 in Helicopter Scholarships

Sixteen Part-Sponsored Integrated CPL(H) Places Will Be Offered, Totalling £100,000

Helicentre Aviation Academy has announced its 2022 scholarship initiative - the largest since the programme began in 2012. The quarter-of-a-million pound (GBP) scholarship fund will assist prospective integrated and modular trainee helicopter pilots to fast-track their careers and will continue to provide exceptional, qualified professional helicopter pilots to the UK crew supply chain. The scholarships, bursaries and part-sponsored places will all be awarded by summer 2022.

The application window has opened for prospective integrated students to apply for up to £10,000 to part-sponsor their place on the September 2021 or January 2022 Integrated CPL(H) (Commercial Pilot Licence - Helicopter) courses with ATPL(H)/IR TK (Theoretical Knowledge). The full-time, 12-month programme is a fast-track and cost-effective route to becoming a professional helicopter pilot, and it is the only integrated CPL course for helicopters approved in the UK.

Sixteen part-sponsored integrated CPL(H) places will be offered, totalling £100,000. These will consist of four places, each with £10,000 of part-sponsorship, and twelve places each receiving £5,000. Applicants must complete the form online at flyheli.uk/apply by 15th August 2021. Successful candidates will be notified before the end of August.

For modular students, a further £150,000 worth of scholarships and bursaries will be awarded consisting of one modular CPL(H) scholarship worth up to £55,000, and a "Bristow" CPL(H) scholarship offering a £15,000 modular CPL(H) course paid for by Helicentre with mentorship by Bristow. This will be awarded to one candidate who shows promise in an Oil and Gas career pathway. A fully-sponsored flight instructor course worth £20,000 will also be awarded a full-time FI(H) position on completion, and for ab-initio students, bursaries towards the PPL(H) modular course will be available totalling £60,000.

Helicentre Aviation has been training professional pilots for more than two decades now, and its scholarship programme has part-funded pilots through training since 2012, investing over £750,000 so far into trainees. Head of Training, Captain Sarah Bowen explained why the company has decided to invest so much in the future pilot workforce this year. "Our scholarship programme has always identified stand-out individuals and has provided us with so many high-quality personnel for our own operation, many of whom now have post-holder roles or are flying in other sectors of the helicopter industry.
