The Liz Inwood ‘Taildragger’ Scholarship, named in memory of the late Tiger Moth pilot and flying instructor Liz Inwood, is being offered annually to a license holder under the age of 35, with the successful recipient being offered five hours flying to assist them in transitioning from flying nose wheel aircraft to tailwheel heritage types.

The applicant must be the holder of a current PPL, NPPL or LAPL, with 100 hours total flying time of which at least 50 hours are as a pilot in command.

This is a terrific opportunity for younger pilots not only to expand their flying experience, but to do so in an environment that offers a wealth of expertise in vintage aviation. Schemes like these are often under subscribed, so you may have a better chance of success than you think!
