The Langley Marshall Trophy memorialises Brian Langley and Paul Marshall – passionate Northshore Aero Club aerobatic instructors and NZAC stalwarts.

Awarding of the Langley Marshall Trophy is to the pilot scoring the highest overall percentage across all completed sequences.

Past winners have typically (but not always) been from the lower categories, so everybody has a chance to win the main trophy.

This two-day competition will allow (weather permitting) at least three competition sequence flights per competitor, in your selected category.
