Women in Aviation Assistance Scholarship
Sydney Metro Airports Bankstown and The Regional Aviation Association of Australia are pleased to invite applications for the Women in Aviation Assistance Scholarship.
Funded by Sydney Metro Airports Bankstown in partnership with BASAIR Aviation College with a value of over $3000, this scholarship will allow five (5) young women to each undergo two (2) introductory flights with BASAIR. This will then be accompanied by two days on site with the Airport Management Team, learning about the compliance, operations, aviation safety and contractor management at the Airport.
These awards will be aimed at young women currently residing near or within the Sydney Basin area and the applicants will ideally be studying Year 11 or 12 at a school or TAFE. The winners will be notified in advance with the award being presented in October with first flights being undertaken (if convenient) during the Aviatex Aviation Industry event being held at Bankstown airport from 15 to 17 November 2018.
All applications will be judged by a panel comprising senior members of the RAAA, Sydney Metro Airports Bankstown and BASAIR Aviation College. The decision of the judges is final, and no correspondence will be entered into.
Applicants should complete the below Application Form, attaching extra pages if required. You may attach any additional or special information which you feel may support your application, including copies of any references or special awards, school reports or certificates, and your curriculum vitae if applicable.
Applications should be received at the RAAA Office by 31 August 2018. Applications can be mailed, emailed or a link sent via DropBox (email@example.com)
Media on our Airports
Our responsibility is for the operation of Sydney Metro Airport Bankstown and Camden and the safety of all airport users.
We make every endeavour to accommodate the media with their requests for photographs and to obtain footage for news and current affairs programming.
To assist our daily operations for all our airport users and tenants we ask the media to observe the following points when visiting the Airport for the purposes of obtaining photographs or footage:
- Bankstown Airport Limited requires prior notice (24 hours would be great) of any camera crew accessing Airport facilities. We understand that ‘breaking news’ does not always allow for a lot of warning, however, to avoid security breaches the Airport still requires as much notice as possible.
- Please call or email our Filming and Events Manager to discuss your requested filming and events requirements on telephone 02 8709 9400 or email.
