The Worshipful Company of Coachmakers and Coach Harness Makers
Sir Geoffrey de Havilland Flying Scholarship 2018

2018 is the fifth year of The Worshipful Company of Coachmakers and Coach Harness Makers scholarship in memory of Sir Geoffrey de Havilland. The Coachmakers’ Company is a City of London Livery Company, raising and distributing charitable funds within the aerospace, automotive and coach making industries and for deserving disadvantaged members of society. Donations are focused on training and education, and examples are those for students studying motor vehicle design at The Royal College of Art and aerospace sciences at Cranfield University.

The scholarship is a flying award, and appropriately for its title the training will take place in the classic and vintage de Havilland DH82A Tiger Moths of the Cambridge Flying Group at Cambridge Airport. It has been said many times that “if you can fly a Tiger Moth – you can fly anything!” and the Cambridge Flying Group has 65 years of providing this experience.

The scholarship invites applications from young people from 18 years up to 30 years of age Resident in the UK who have not previously been awarded any such bursary. The aim is to make a significant difference to the applicants opportunity to learn to fly and create the opportunity to train in such an iconic vintage aeroplane as the Tiger Moth whose lessons in flying skills are as appropriate in 2018 as when the aeroplane first flew in 1931. No previous flying experience is required although evidence of a keen interest in aviation is a necessity.

To celebrate the 5th anniversary, this year’s scholarship will fund 75% of the cost of the standard hours training required for a Private Pilots Licence with only 25% to be funded on an hours flown basis by this year’s successful Coachmakers Flying Scholarship winner.

Group Captain Marcus Wills CVO OBE, Chairman of the Coachmakers Aerospace Awards Committee said: “This is a very exciting award, and the Coachmakers Company is delighted to play a part in helping a young person to achieve an ambition when otherwise they might not be able to do so. I am sure that, in the long term, learning to fly a vintage aircraft will make a significant contribution to a more widespread general knowledge of airmanship and flight safety.”
