The Regional Aviation Association of Australia (RAAA) is aware that the cost associated to entering the aviation industry and maintaining skills once qualified can be a burden to current and potential future pilots.
To emphasise the importance of new people entering the regional aviation industry and the continued education of current people we have arranged partnerships with member organisations to award scholarships to individuals meeting the criteria to assist them completing their studies or that advance current participants in regional aviation skills.
The RAAA Pilot Scholarships are intended to assist in the training or advancement of current and future commercial pilots in regional Australia undergoing training or working in the Australian aviation industry for an RAAA member or associated to the scholarship sponsor.
