TopNav results

The results of this year's TopNav Competition have been announced prior to the awards at the AGM.

The competitions took place in May at Retford (Gamston) and White Waltham. And, after much poring over charts, photo's, logs and outputs from GPS loggers, the General Aviation Navigation Group (GANG)'s TopNav Team have promulgated the results:

Overall winners (Wansbrough-White/RIN Trophy) - Martin Leusby & Robert Taylor
TopNav North (BALPA Trophy) - Graham Purchase & Rosie Stroud
TopNav North Runners-up (GNav Trophy) - Andrew Collins & Michael Crawshaw
TopNav South (WLAC Trophy) - Martin Leusby & Robert Taylor
TopNav South Runners-up (AOPA Trophy) - Diane Davy & John Davy
Top ‘Military’ (RAFFCA Trophy) - Graham Purchase & Rosie Stroud
Youth Winner (Certificate) Michelle Brown with pilot Mark Turner
Youth Runner-up (Certificate) Katie Dennis with pilot Graham Campbell

In addition, it was decided that Tom Lloyd (with pilot Roy Marriot) and Billie Wilson (with pilot Mark Turner) should receive ‘Certificates of Participation’ and that the Transair Prize vouchers should go to the 'Spirit of Goole' team as a whole.

The winners are invited to receive their awards from HRH The Duke of Edinburgh at the AGM on 16 July - see details at the link below . .

We congratulate the winners on their achievements - it was wonderful to see the youth team from Goole participating; we hope to feature youth entrants in future competitions.
