The Langley Marshall Trophy

Hello summer! And hello to the second annual North Island Akro Fest, awarding the Langley Marshall Trophy, in memory of Brian Langley and Paul Marshall, passionate Northshore Aero Club aerobatic instructors and stalwarts.

There will be category winners and the presentation of the Langley Marshall Trophy to the pilot scoring the highest overall percentage across all categories in the judged competition flights.

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

To be involved (pilots and helpers), please enter here.
