The Real Aeroplane Flying Scholarship 2019

George will commence his training towards a LAPL with York Flying School which is based at Breighton airfield.

The Real Aeroplane Club is delighted to announce that George Gohl has been successful in winning the 2019 Real Aeroplane Club Scholarship. The Club celebrates its 30th anniversary next year.

The competition was open to applicants aged between 17 to 25 living in Yorkshire. Over 25 submissions were received and the standard was exceptionally high. George demonstrated his passion, commitment and enthusiasm towards aviation during a challenging interview and flying skills test.

George is currently studying for ‘A’ levels and has always wanted to be a pilot. His goal is to be a commercial pilot or join the RAF. He is an active member of his local RAF Air Cadet (872) Hull Squadron. His hobbies include building and flying scaled model aircraft, and designing and building telemetry systems for his models. He has also built a flight simulator in his parent’s loft so he can practise his flying.

The scholarship has been kindly funded by a Club Member in memory of our dear friend Nigel Feetham.

A word about access to Breighton Airfield for members of the general public

Whilst we warmly welcome members of the general public to Breighton admission can only be made by subscribing to Museum Club Membership (we prefer to think of it as a season ticket). Annual membership is just £30 per year don't forget you can bring family and friends along too (on the proviso that the Club member accepts responsibility for their guests) and visit any weekend, not just Fly-in weekends. Museum membership represents excellent value for money and is very popular with aviation enthusiasts and budding aviation photographers who enjoy an unrivalled level of access to aircraft, pilots and the flying activities.

Pilots of visiting aircraft and their crews/pax DO NOT NEED TO BE CLUB MEMBERS and there are NO LANDING FEES ON FLY-IN DAYS.
