Take Off and Coronavirus


Take Off was running a parallel programme of scholarships this year in partnership with Alba Air Sports and The Scottish Aero Club – one working with students from four Perth City schools, and one working with applicants from local RAF Cadets – but unfortunately we have been forced to put plans on hold due to the closure of both the SAC and now Scone Airfield in-line with government guidelines to minimise the spread of the virus. We do, however, hope to continue with the scheme once restrictions are lifted. This will likely take us into 2021 and may be subject to retaining pledged funds. If and when things relaunch we will be contacting interested applicants from this year’s curtailed scheme as our starting point.

With all best wishes

The Take Off Team.
