Initially created as a friendly contest between between organiser Michele Marchi Vidi and his friends, it has expanded over the years, is open to all qualified pilots on certified wings and has some great prizes on offer. The Flymaster instrument that was this year’s top prize was donated by InfinityFly . Other prizes are awarded by raffle, with anyone who scored points in the competition eligible to win something.
