A massive congratulations to Lomac student, Gary Frederick (24) from Huyton, who will be receiving a bursary contributing £1,500 to assist in the completion of his course. The funds will be used to aid Gary’s flight training and examinations.
The Armstrong-Isaacs Trust is based on a major donation from David Armstrong, who was a founder member of the original ULAA in 1947, a lifelong member of the LAA’s predecessor the PFA and its chairman from 1960 to 1964. His legacy, co-named with pioneer PFA aircraft designer and builder John O. Isaacs, has since 1998 aided young flyers in gaining their licenses.
Applications for 2018 Armstrong-Isaacs Bursaries will open later this year. They are open to any pilot in UK PPL training under the age of 30, who has completed a minimum of five hours solo flying. When available, the application forms will be found at the LAA website: www.lightaircraftassociation.co.uk
