History of the Foundation
The Foundation is based on two major donations from David Armstrong, a very early member of the LAA and the equally eminent John Isaacs, the designer of the Isaacs Fury and 7/10 scale Isaacs Spitfire, both now sadly no longer with us, plus many smaller donations from individuals and Struts.
The purpose of the Foundation is to provide a Flying Scholarship towards a private pilot's licence on a regular basis to a young person between the ages of 17 and 21 at the date of application. Applicants do need to be a student member of the LAA on application. Currently the charge for student membership is £15 per annum and will therefore be eligible for all LAA Student Member benefits including the monthly magazine.
