First flight - Pilots will have the opportunity of a short training flight away from the airfield before returning to fly the sequence in the overhead. This sequence will be judged for training purposes.

Second flight - Pilots will fly the sequence in the overhead again but without the training flight beforehand. This flight will be judged in the same way as regular competitions, with a 'winner' being crowned.


Event only open to RAFFCA members

Pilots will be competing for the Tony Ayre Blade, named in memory of Sgt Tony Ayre, who was an enthusiastic aerobatic pilot who won the inaugural RAFFCA event in 2014. Unfortunately he was killed later that same year. Sgt Tony Ayre's family bequeathed a fully aerobatic Pitts S-2AE, G-PULR, that he was in the middle of building to RAFFCA, which has been named the Spirit of Ayre, thus honouring his enthusiasm for this burgeoning sport within the RAF.
