This year’s visual navigation competition for private pilots is now open for booking.
The 2019 event is to be held simultaneously at Bodmin, Compton Abbas and Peterborough Business Airport (Conington) on Saturday 18 May and at Solent Airport (Lee-on-Solent/Daedalus) and White Waltham on Sunday 19 May.
The competition is for a 2-person crew - pilot and navigator - but extra crew-members may be carried. Each aircraft will be fitted with a GPS tracker to check where it actually flew during a flight of around 80 minutes.
Entry charges are very modest, thanks to sponsorship from Pooley’s, and landing fees are waived. Most importantly, the day is great fun as well as instructive, and visitors are welcome.
