The BC Floatplane Association (BCFA) recognizes the need to continue our freedom to fly floats in BC and so the BCFA is proud to be able to offer a $2500 scholarship towards a seaplane rating each year.
The applicant must be a BC resident currently holding a valid Canadian Private Pilot License or higher with a minimum of 150 hrs total time. The winner of the BCFA scholarship must successfully complete the seaplane training in BC and their License endorsed within twelve (12) months of the time the scholarship was awarded. Funds will be paid directly to the flight school of choice. The recipient will be chosen on a basis of merit, career or float flying aspirations and dedication, as well as contributions to their community. One of the two recommendation letters must be from a pilot you have flown with. The BCFA Scholarship Guidelines references the additional requirements to be met.
