In honour of Caroline and in consultation with her family, the Ulster Flying Club is pleased to announce the “Caroline Mawhinney Future Female Pilot Scholarship”.

Caroline Mawhinney was a loving mother, teacher and treasured member of the aviation community who sadly lost her life in an aircraft accident on Tuesday 19th July 2022. Caroline was a much-loved member of our flying club and an inspiration to all.

Caroline’s passion for aviation was unwavering. She was in the process of completing advanced flight training with the ultimate goal of becoming a flight instructor. Loved by students and staff, Caroline was instrumental in the success of Open Days, club fly-outs and dedicated her free time to our Airport Fire and Rescue service.

In honour of Caroline and her passion for flying, relentless contributions to aviation in Northern Ireland and dedication to our flying club, we are pleased to announce that we are now accepting donations for this scholarship in her memory.

This scholarship will help an aspiring female to become a fully qualified private pilot at the Ulster Flying Club. With the average cost of a pilot’s licence in the UK at approximately £10,000, this scholarship will change the life of a future female pilot.

Details on how to apply for the Caroline Mawhinney Future Female Pilot Scholarship will be announced at a later date.
