YFC TRAINING SCHOLARSHIPS
TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR YOUTH
York Soaring is proud to be the home of Youth Flight Canada, a Canadian Charity Organization providing scholarships to deserving young people who cannot, on their own, afford to fly.
About Youth Flight Canada
Youth Flight Canada (YFC) is a registered Canadian charity that provides support to youth interested in aviation. Gliding is between 1/4th to 1/5th the hourly cost of flying a powered aircraft but it is still far beyond the means of most youth who have either already earned their glider pilot license or expressed interest in attaining it.
The program focuses on youth between the ages of 16 and 26 years of age who are pursuing a Glider Pilot License. The youth must meet other criteria depending on the scholarship application.
Flight Training Scholarships
A Youth Flight Canada Flight Training Scholarship is designed to subsidize in whole or in part the cost of attaining a Glider Pilot Licence.
The York Soaring Flight Training Scholarship, will provide for a fully-funded, comprehensive flight training package leading to a glider pilot licence.
- Be enrolled in an aviation-related college program (or equivalent)
