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 twelfth year, the programme engages schools and colleges within the local area to inform and educate about aviation.

“We are keen to encourage young people to not only become involved in the world of aviation but also reach their full potential and are extremely proud to support this initiative through our community engagement,” said Brandon O’Reilly, CEO TAG Farnborough Airport.
