Important! - Everybody attending, (pilots and officials), MUST provide evidence of a negative lateral flow Covid-19 test taken within 48hrs of arrival. Testing kits are widely available from pharmacies or by clicking here.

Due to unknown Covid-19 restrictions, the structure of this event may change at very short notice.

Pilots competing in the Tiger Trophy must enter at the highest level at which they have previously competed at a British Aerobatics or International event. The intent of this requirement is that pilots should fly at the level which challenges the full extent of their aerobatic capability and hence puts all pilots on an equal footing.

In some circumstances, pilots may have been inactive at competitions for a number of years, or may have chosen to compete at a lower level of competition. In such instances, the Head of Contest Organisation may exempt a pilot from this requirement.

An exemption will not be given if the pilot has competed at a higher level within the previous five years. Pilots who wish to obtain an exemption to this rule and fly at a lower level, must contact the Head of Contest Organisation for approval before the entry deadline for the contest.

Pilots are invited to form teams of 3 - 6 pilots for the 'Surprise Unknowns'. The Team Tankard will be awarded to the team with the 3 highest ranked pilots. Participation as part of a team in the Surprise Unknown is not compulsory. Individual medals will also be awarded.

Unknown sequences may be replaced with un-flown trophies from earlier events.
