Armstrong Isaacs Foundation

Armstrong/Isaacs Foundation

 

February 2014 - Latest Update

 

As an outcome of the 2013 Armstrong Isaacs Flying Scholarship competition an award has been made towards a private pilot's licence to Mr Will Proud.

 

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 Young Person membership is £10 per annum and will therefore be eligible for all Youth Member benefits including the monthly magazine.
