The McRobert Award

The McRobert Award has recently been introduced to assist student pilots specifically learning to fly in the UK on vintage aircraft, such as the Tiger Moth, Chipmunk or Stampe.

The Bursary is named after Mike and Lola McRobert who were both pilots and keen supporters of pilots training in post war Britain. They left a generous legacy to the De Havilland Educational Trust to help further their work.

Awards are made on a discretionary basis throughout the year and provide up to £1,000 to help student pilots cover the cost of their Skills Test.

Individuals can apply for a McRobert Award after the commencement of their flying training by submitting an application form by contacting DHET (see our “Get In Touch” page). Applicants may be required to undertake an interview prior to any decision by the Trustees to grant an award.
