TopNav is a VFR navigation competition for private pilots, held every year in May. This year it will be staged at four airfields: Peterborough Conington, Goodwood, Bodmin and White Waltham on Saturday 6 May at all four venues, with a weather reserve on 13 May.
It is for a 2-person crew – pilot and navigator. Your aircraft will be fitted with a GPS tracker to check where you ‘actually’ flew. There are various categories: Aeroplane, Helicopter, Microlight and SLMG (Motor Gliders). There are also separate categories for Youth and Military entries, and separate routes for slower aircraft. ‘Youth’ entries involve an older pilot flying a navigator who is below the age of 18 – a great experience for the younger ones .
