At the Club AGM in January 2019 the Club presented four awards to members.
The Spitfire Award
The award is given for outstanding flying achievement during the year and the winners were Fiona and Angus Macaskill. For their support of the Club and their enthusiasm for all things aviation.Yes,they are now GA but let us make no mistake that these two people have been pushing their limits continually and providing us with insights into mountain flying, snow landings, Air Racing and how to register and get anew world record. All this continues to provide the Club with some very interesting talks.Fiona and Angus unfortunately were unable to be at the AGM to receive the award because they were off flying in the USA where Fiona had won a spin-training scholarship from ‘Ladies Love Taildraggers’. The award was finally made at Over Farm.
After much thought, Ed, Club Chairman, decided that the award should go to Phil Hanman for his continued support of the Club, his undiluted passion for flying and for his Pyrenean Altiport landing which did wonders for his heart rate and blood pressure! (No photo available)

The winner of this special award for 2018 was John Sparks who regularly submits superb photos for publication in “Airscrew”, the Club’s monthly newsletter . The award was a voucher for £50 donated by another Club member to be put towards a purchase from a well known Scottish company which sells all manner of aircraft equipment and accessories.
The Host with the Most
For the third year running the winner was Monica Hamer This award is given to the host of the individual summer fly-in event which raises the largest contribution for the annual Air Ambulance Charity collection.
