SAA First Officer, Fatima Jakoet                                                      PPL, Alexander Villette

Alexander Villette was one of two recipients of the WCMC PPL Scholarship program who was selected by a panel of highly experienced WCMC pilots, including an active SAA Captain, and the Sakhikamva Foundation. The scholarship covered all the PPL training costs and was sponsored by the generous donations from some of the WCMC members.
 

The WCMC PPL Scholarship Program is an ongoing contribution by the WCMC to develop pilots that hail from previously disadvantaged communities. A spokesperson for the WCMC, said, “We are extremely proud of Alex and his commitment to the training program. We wish him the best of luck for the future and we are sure he will in the near future be piloting a commercial jet. We trust he will not forget the WCMC and will choose to remain a member of the Club throughout his, hopefully, long aviation career.”

 
SAA First Officer, Fatima Jakoet, the founder of the Sakhikamva foundation, and a key person responsible for selecting Alex from a large number of applicants was quoted as saying, “Alex has really taken this opportunity with both hands & we are exceptionally proud of his achievement in obtaining his PPL.”

Alexander took a total of 46 hours to complete his license over a period of 7 months. “I’m very grateful for this opportunity to kick start my aviation career” said Alexander. He will now commence training for his night rating before applying for a bursary from Teta to enroll for his Commercial Pilots License.
