The NSWHPA provides financial support to encourage participation by NSW pilots in gaining safety and piloting skills. Essentially we want you to be safe, and become better pilots. To help you, we have developed some guidelines to provide you with financial support to help make it more accessible and affordable.

You won’t be able to get a free trip fly in Bali, but we definitely aim to help you pay for pilot training and pilot skill development. We provide financial support by providing subsidies that are determined by the cost that is incurred in the safety training and development course/clinic, the cost in organising and managing competition events and modest support for pilots representing NSW at overseas competitions.

We have subsidies for Pilot Endorsements, Pilot Safety Training and Development, and for Competitions as well as providing support for NSW pilots wanting to compete overseas. Each one of these areas has a separate guideline, which are easily accessible from this website. Simply click the download button for each respective area.

For flying instructors and commercial operators, we invite you to look at these guidelines in order to consider any new courses or training programs that will satisfy these guidelines and enable our pilots to develop their flying skills and become safer pilots.

funding for pilot safety training & development

We want to see safer and better pilots flying in NSW. To make that happen we proudly support those pilots who are making the effort to improve their skills by attending training courses with qualified instructors. We figure if we can help support you fly better and safer it makes NSW a better and safer place to fly. We support a number of different types of pilot safety training & development courses/clinics some of which include:

  • First aid courses for safety officers
  • Theoretical and Practical Flying Skills clinics
  • Training aimed at reinforcing/refreshing endorsement skills,  post-endorsement
  • Training which enables pilots to meet the requirements for emergency equipment, assembly, inspection and maintenance.

Flying site funding

So you've got a flying site that needs some work and some dollars that are needed to make it happen. That's where the NSWHPA can help out. We love helping NSW clubs that want to improve their sites or create a completely new site. We're here to help. While we want to help fund your club's site improvement or next site, we don't give out money willy nilly. Your club executive simply needs to send an email to executive@nswhpa.org detailing your plans for site improvement/development and we will begin the dialog to help you make this happen.

Funding for NSW pilots to compete overseas

Our best pilots often make big sacrifices to represent our country at overseas competitions. While we don't have a huge amount of funds, we do try to support our NSW pilots by making funds available to help them when representing our country.  To find out more ways you may be able to access some modest funding please download the funding guideline below and then send the completed form to executive@nswhpa.org. Over the years the NSWHPA has supported a number of NSW pilots representing official Australian teams  at international competitions and we aim to keep doing this as long as  funds are available.
