TAG Farnborough Airport awarded its TAG Flying Scholarship 2018 that provides training towards a Private Pilot’s License (PPL) to 17-year-old Réshé Harrison.
The scholarship is part of the airport’s Aviation to Education program that informs and educates local schools and colleges about aviation. Sponsored by the Honourable Company of Air Pilots’ scholarship program, TAG Farnborough Airport grants one young person a scholarship each year, supporting individuals who might not have the necessary resources to gain flying experience and achieve their PPL. Over the past 11 years, scholarship recipients have progressed to a variety of professional roles within the aviation industry such as a commercial airline pilot.
Harrison is currently studying for a BTEC Extended Diploma in Aeronautical Engineering at Kingston College and is training for his PPL at Redhill Aviation Flight Centre. With the support of the scholarship, Harrison can attend a university to study Air Transport with Commercial Pilot Training.
