The third Annual Worshipful Company of Coachmakers and Coach Harness Makers Sir Geoffrey de Havilland Flying Scholarship has been awarded to Peterborough-based Photographic Retoucher Holly Palmer-Davison.
The scholarship is a flying award which is open for applications from people up to the age of 30 who have not previously been awarded any such bursary. The aim of the Scholarship is to give applicants the opportunity fly when it may not have been possible without it.
The selection of the shortlisted applicants took place at the Cambridge Flying Group (CFG). CFG operates two vintage Tiger Moth biplanes.
It has been said many times that “if you can fly a Tiger Moth – you can fly anything!” and the yellow and silver Tiger Moth biplanes of the Cambridge Flying Group have more than 60 years of providing such experience.
“Thanks to the Worshipful Company of Coachmakers and Coach Harness Makers for this amazing opportunity. I am so excited for what lies ahead and can’t wait to get cracking with my flight training at Cambridge Flying Group. I am truly honoured”, said Holly.
