Bursary Programme

News

Get one step closer to achieving your dream with our new bursary programme for aspiring pilots.

At Leading Edge Aviation we know that the cost of training can be a barrier to a career as an airline pilot. So we’d like to help. 

We are offering three bursaries towards the cost of our Leading Edge Airline Pilot programme.

The LEAP® programme is our EASA integrated pilot training course that takes you from zero aviation experience to airline-ready in one comprehensive programme, with one straightforward price. You’ll achieve your professional training qualifications, plus a degree, and we’ll support you every step of the way into airline employment.

To be eligible for one of the bursaries, you must fulfil the criteria listed in the Terms and Conditions below and must apply for, pay for, and successfully complete a Leading Edge Skills Assessment. All applicants who pass the Skills Assessment will be entered into the ballot for a bursary award. Awards will be announced in January 2020 and bursary recipients must begin their training course between 1 September 2019 and 31 May 2020.

For more information about the bursaries, and to find out about becoming a pilot with Leading Edge Aviation, contact us below.
