The Attagirls Molly Rose Pilot Scholarship needs your support to ensure that we can continue to offer PPL pilot training to current and future generations.
The scholarship is named after Molly Rose (neé Marshall), the heroine aviatrix whose incredible life story inspired the book and film Attagirls, both of which are based on her time in the Air Transport Auxiliary (‘ATA’) during World War II. Molly was not afraid to embrace any challenge and she achieved her pilot's licence whilst still a teenager. We hope that Molly's story will inspire other young women to learn how to become a pilot and our scholarship provides the opportunity to take the first step.
Funding was secured for the inaugural year (2021-22) and PPL training was awarded to 17-year-old Georgia Pescod, a Cambridge-based student and Air Cadet. We are now raising funding for the 2023-24 AMRPS and we have already raised 50% of our target via JustGiving.
By joining our close community of supporters, you will contribute to our mission to ensure that this scholarship continues long into the future, offering other young girls the opportunity to step onto the aviation career ladder, and to change the female-to-male ratio in a profession which is currently male-dominated.
