RAF Charitable Trust: JRPSS Story
The Junior Ranks Pilot Scholarship Scheme (JRPSS) is a scheme run by the RAF Charitable Trust and RAF Flying Clubs that helps serving RAF Regular and Reserve Junior Ranks go from zero flight experience to flying an aircraft solo as pilot in command.
Learning to fly typically costs thousands of pounds – the JRPSS scheme enables under 25 year-olds to undertake 15 hours flying training on a light aircraft and examinations in core subjects such as Air Law, Meteorology and Navigation. Following a recognised syllabus, the training may count towards the award of a Light Aircraft Pilot Licence.
The scheme is just one of the many ways in which the Trust encourages air-mindedness and the aviation-related education of young people. From scholarships to getting children involved in STEM the Trust is focussed on inspiring the next generation of aviation professionals.
