CRAWLEY, U.K., October 29, 2019 — L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) has offered 10 L3Harris Pilot Pathways Female Scholarship for 2019 towards the cost of the company’s Integrated Airline Transport Pilot License (APTL) training.
“We congratulate the successful candidates and wish them long and exciting careers as pilots,” said Geoff van Klaveren, Vice President, L3Harris’ Airline Academy. “We are passionate about encouraging more women onto the flight deck. It’s a significant issue for the industry and we are committed to showcasing the career among a wider group of people.”
“This scholarship has provided women with the motivation to consider becoming a pilot, as well as the means,” said scholarship-recipient Olivia Clarke. “I can’t wait to advance my dream of becoming a commercial airline pilot.”
Miryam Ley, another scholarship recipient, added, “Until I came across a female pilot’s social media profile, I had not considered a career as a pilot because you never think of yourself in a role unless you see someone you can relate to in it. I now hope to be a role model that can inspire other young women to consider it as an exciting and viable career opportunity.”
