Sheltair Aviation and Avfuel Corporation have expanded the scope of their partnership to include a new scholarship programme, Future Takes Flight.

The Future Takes Flight scholarships will provide $30,000 in educational funds annually. Each year, the programme will award six $5,000 scholarships across three categories: two for learning to fly or advanced pilot ratings, two for aviation technicians and two for continuing education.

“The Future Takes Flight scholarship programme stems from a desire to re-invest in the aviation community we love and are so deeply passionate about,” says Lisa Holland, Sheltair's president. “The Sheltair and Avfuel teams felt the best way to do so was by providing meaningful financial support to aviators pursuing a greater commitment to business aviation. We're giving back to the industry that has given us everything.”

Funds in the learning to fly or advanced pilot ratings category can be used for course work or flight lessons for students pursuing their private pilot certificate, adding a type rating, adding to their certificate with an ATP, completing a bachelor's degree, working toward a CAM certification, or completing upset recovery training.

Funds in the aviation technicians category can be used to start or continue aviation technician coursework, or achieve a mechanic's inspector authorisation certification.

Funds in the continuing education category can be used to further skills needed when working at an FBO, charter company, maintenance facility or flight school.
