Leading Edge announces Bursary Programme

Print page

Leading Edge Aviation is to award three bursaries to aspiring airline pilots, the company has announced.

The awards are to be used towards the academy’s full time, integrated training course, the Leading Edge Airline Pilot programme (LEAP®).

The bursaries, worth £20,000, £10,000 and £5,000, will be given to three future pilots who have successfully passed the Leading Edge Skills Assessment and who begin their LEAP® course between 1 September 2019 and 31 May 2020.

Awards will be deducted from the final payment due as part of the course payment plan and recipients will be announced in January 2020.

The LEAP® course leads to a ‘frozen’ ATPL(A) and a BSc degree. The usual price of the complete course is £99,500, which includes many of the additional costs student pilots usually have to pay extra for, including accommodation, exam fees, headset and iPad.

“We know that finance can be a barrier to a career as an airline pilot and so we want to help,” says Andy McFarlane, CEO of Leading Edge Aviation. “These bursaries will help three aspiring pilots get one step closer to achieving their dream of flying professionally.”
