2nd Nick Davidson Memorial Flying Scholarship

We are very pleased to announce that for a second year we are proud to be able to offer the Nick Davidson Memorial Flying Scholarship for a young prospective aviator!

A second Nick Davidson Memorial Flying Scholarship has been funded by the Davidson family to enable another young person between the ages of 18 and 25 to learn to fly and qualify to the standard of a full Private Pilots Licence (PPL) at Biggin Hill Airport.

Following on from the initial PPL sponsorship of 2013 when a legacy from the late Captain Nick Davidson of British Airways who died from cancer in 2012 was established, his widow Alina said that the overall experience arising from Nick’s original intention had been heart-warming.

“As a family, we were enormously impressed that as many as 45 keen youngsters applied for the scholarship and the eventual winner, John Harrison, achieved so well on the course. For us, the scheme had high value and purpose in memorialising Nick’s first professional flying job as an instructor at Biggin Hill and the flying career that he enjoyed so much. This has encouraged us to want to continue in 2014” says Alina.

The Nick Davidson Memorial Flying Scholarship is offered in association with Biggin Hill Airport Ltd and the Surrey & Kent Flying Club, both of whom are providing facilities and services to support the legacy funding.
