We provide flying opportunities for young people in Scotland to foster self-confidence, self-belief and motivation

We also aim to raise awareness of the opportunities in aviation with the goal of helping young people to see and realise their potential, which will have benefits in all areas of life as well as for the wider community.

We are registered with OSCR and work in partnership with local education bodies and flight training providers to help us meet our goals. The trustees have a varied background in aviation and education and in addition to their expertise, bring their passion for flying and a desire to help others in order to achieve the trusts’ objectives.
