Ten young adults aged 15 to 17 have been awarded with $2,500 flight scholarships by Airservices Australia.

The group was chosen from a field of about 50 applicants who had demonstrated an aptitude for flying and a commitment to aviation.

Airservices spokesperson Rob Walker said the annual scholarships offer a chance to develop basic aviation knowledge which could lead to a later career in military, commercial, general or recreational aviation.


“We hope these scholarships will encourage young flyers to become active, long-term members of the recreational aviation community and beyond,” Mr Walker said.

• Anastasia Millward, 16, George Town, Tasmania
