Awards and Trophies
Each year in January, the Club holds its Awards’ Dinner. An inclusive evening of pilots and guests; an opportunity to reflect on the year of flying and catch up with friends over dinner.
This year sees the introduction of Distance Award Medals for the first time. The Club is keen to encourage and recognise the achievements of pilots at all levels of experience.
