TAG Farnborough Airport has launched the TAG Flying Scholarship 2019. Under the auspices of the Honourable Company of Air Pilots’ scholarship programme, TAG Farnborough Airport grants one person a scholarship with the aim of supporting individuals who might otherwise not have the necessary resources to gain flying experience and ultimately achieve their Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL).
The TAG Flying Scholarship is part of the airport’s Aviation to Education programme. Now in its 12th year, the programme engages schools and colleges within the local area to inform and educate students about aviation.
Over the past decade, scholarship recipients have progressed to a variety of professional roles within the aviation industry such as commercial airline pilot. Last year’s scholarship recipient, 17-year-old Réshé Harrison, completed his flight training at Redhill Aviation Flight Centre and successfully gained his PPL in October 2018.
