The 15 June closing date for the Ultimate High Rob Wildeboer Scholarship is approaching, and all interested parties are encouraged to submit their application as soon as possible. The award is offered by Ultimate High to remember and honour Rob Wildeboer, in addition to other bursaries in his name made available by Goodwood Flying School.  

The winner will take part in a UPRT training programme, which helps pilots avoid, recognise and recover from unusual attitudes resulting from loss of control in flight. The course, which is worth £795, is normally completed over one day but poor weather may extend this. Comprising two flights of approximately fifty minutes each, the flying can be tailored to individual requirements, and three hours of technical knowledge instruction are also included. All flying can be logged as Pu/t. Applicants will likely be PPL holders although this is not essential. They must be at least sixteen years old and hold an appropriate aviation medical. The scholarship is only available for training at Ultimate High and must be carried out during 2022.  

Rob Wildeboer, the Goodwood Flying School Manager, passed away in 2021 after a sudden illness. Wildeboer joined Goodwood straight from school aged 16, initially as an aircraft engineering apprentice, making his way to Aviation General Manager before managing the Goodwood Flying School. 

To apply for the Ultimate High Rob Wildeboer Scholarship or for further information, interested parties can email, explaining in no more than 500 words why they should be the winners. Applicants should also provide brief details of their previous flying experience.
