Winnipeg Flying Club President's Trophy Award

The Winnipeg Flying Club is pleased to announce the availability of the President’s Trophy Award for 2014. This award recognizes performance in the achievement of the Private Pilot Licence.

WFC has offered awards for pilot training, flight instruction, aviation excellence, and volunteerism, for much of our 85+ year history.

In 2013, several significant local events were held celebrating and promoting Women in Aviation, beginning with the Women Fly For Free event at St Andrews in March 2013. Extending on that theme, for 2014 WFC is offering two prize awards of $500 each.

Applications are being accepted from Manitoba women of all ages, who achieved their Private Pilot Licence between March 9, 2013 and May 24, 2014 (participation in the Women Fly For Free event is not an eligibility requirement for these awards).

Applications will be accepted until the end of day May 31, 2014. Winner(s) will be selected by the WFC Awards Committee, and announced during St. Andrews Airport’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, being held during the weekend of June 14, 2014.
