Application for a
                                                  Fiona McKay Flying Bursary

The aims of the de Havilland Educational Trust (deHET) are:

1) To encourage and promote the continued operation of historic aeroplanes by:
     a) facilitating flying training through the award of bursaries,
     b) facilitating training of aircraft engineers through the award of bursaries.

2) To enable people of all backgrounds and ages to experience flights in historic
   de Havilland aeroplanes.

Each year deHET will award a maximum of two bursaries to fund ten hours flying on
de Havilland Tiger Moth aircraft at the Cambridge Flying Group (CFG) or at an
alternative establishment/location subject to agreement. The bursaries are to enable
licensed pilots to convert onto the de Havilland Tiger Moth, with the aim of providing
a new and continuing stream of experience for the operation of vintage aeroplanes.

Applicant Criteria for a Flying Bursary 2010

1.    A current UK licence holder (any class) for a powered fixed-wing aeroplane
(single engine piston including touring motorgliders, self-launching motorgliders and
three-axis microlight.)

2.    A minimum of 75 hours pilot in command at the time of the application.

Selection Process

A maximum of eight candidates will be selected for interview at Cambridge on a
date in April, each also to receive an assessment flight in a Tiger Moth, subject to
weather and other operational considerations. As a result a maximum of two bursary
awards will be made, subject to confirmation by the Board of Trustees.
