The IFA has funded a scholarship program since 1979; as we adjust to cope with the Covid-19 pandemic our scholarship programme is also adjusting.
We are pleased to offer a series of scholarships during 2022/2023 enabling individuals to attend either in person or online airworthiness courses kindly donated by IFA members and other organisations.
The 2022 scholarship will provide an individual with free registration on an airworthiness training course. Further details to be released shortly

The rules and working of the scholarship are:
The IFA Autumn 2021 Scholarship is awarded to Rabindra Ramoutar, Head of Training at hte Art Williams & Harry Wendt Aeronautical Engineering School, Guyana. Mr Ramoutar has selected to work for the SOFEMA EASA Part 145/147 Instructor Diploma and will pass on the knowledge gained to next generation through his work at the school.
“The course sought to provide an insight into the regulatory framework of aircraft certification and maintenance, as well as the organisations involved in this process and their responsibilities. The lessons highlighted the dynamism of this area of aviation, which is necessary in order to guarantee safety in such a rapidly evolving industry, and both the academic and professional lecturers provided valuable insight from their experiences and various practical scenarios which were extremely instructive.
Airworthiness is also one of the key areas of the Department of Aircraft and Spacecraft in the UPM. It is in this department in which I am currently starting my doctoral studies with Professor Cristina Cuerno-Rejado and seeking to develop a career in aeronautical research.”
This seminar fueled my aviation subject knowledge and gave me a fruitful learning experience. The concepts taught in this course, cleared the air of doubt on what airworthiness is actually all about and how the airworthiness system was structured.
