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

NSWHPA’s international competition funding guidelines means financial support is available to NSW pilots to gain experience at overseas competitions which are generally of a higher level and not available in Australia. Because there are many competitions available throughout the world, this support will only be available to NSW pilots named on an Australian team by the Australian selectors, usually the SAFA (formerly HGFA) Competition Committee.

Applications to be received no less than one month before the international competition.
