Higgins also welcomed Moorabbin Flying Services as a new scholarship sponsor for 2017.

“This scholarship is aimed at pilots seeking their multi-crew cooperation certificates and is a welcome addition to the RAAA’s scholarships,” Higgins said in a statement on Friday.

“The continued philanthropic commitment of our member organisations to recognise the value of education and training through the provision of these scholarships cannot be undervalued.”

The scholarship recipients will be presented with their awards at the RAAA national convention to be held on the Gold Coast on October 25-27.
