My Pilot Studies Fund

Hello, my name is Priyanka Gandhi, I am 18, from Oxfordshire. I am a Fly2Help Scholar trying to raise money for an ATP integrated course, which I have recently started with QualityFly; I am unable to afford the whole amount myself, as my mother has raised me all alone since the age of 6 months.

I know there are many students out there who need money just like me for their studies, but what makes me different is all of the things I have achieved until now.

I have wanted to become a pilot since the age of 7, and have never changed my mind since: I joined the Air Cadets in 2014 as my interest in aviation grew bigger, which helped me gain a lot of experience in not only flying but other essential skills needed in life such as being first aid qualified, as well as skills needed for becoming a pilot such as radios, which I have a Bronze qualification in. In the first year of being a cadet, I was able to achieve the rank of Corporal. Following on a year later, I was able to achieve the rank or Sergeant, which I am very proud of, and now I’ve achieved the rank of flight sergeant. I have also achieved a GCSE in Aviation Studies, which allowed me to complete an Instructor Cadet course, qualifying me to instruct other cadets and help them achieve things like myself.

I have also taken part in a scholarship called Fly2Help Aim High, which saw me learn more about the day-to-day workings of pilot life. I was privileged enough to win the William Sharpe Trophy as part of the scholarship for being the most improved candidate on the scheme, which provided me with £500 worth of flying lessons. 

For the course I would like to take, I will need approximately £60,000, which is a lot. However, this will pay for everything I will need including all the books and tuition fees and other essential learning materials.

I would like to thank you for taking your time to read this and help me with funding for my course. Any little donation will help me in every way possible, which I am very grateful of. Once again,  thank you very much.
