The Royal Aeronautical Society launched the Centennial Scholarship Fund in 2003 to provide financial support to the next generation of aerospace pioneers. Through the Centennial Fund, the Royal Aeronautical Society has generously provided crucial financial support of the RAeC Trust’s “Flying for Youth” programme for a decade. The Flying for Youth programme provides bursaries to support the development of young pilots in all disciplines. Since its launch, the Flying for Youth programme has with the invaluable assistance of the Society gone from strength to strength. For example, it granted 28 bursaries in 2012 targeting disadvantaged young people as well as other applicants. The success of the Trusts Flying for Youth programme is due in no small part to the on-going financial support of the Royal Aeronautical Society which has been a mainstay of the programme which remains undiminished despite the current difficult financial climate.
