July 22, 2008 – The regional phase of the 2008 competition ended on July 15th and the nine winners were selected according to the highest flight test marks submitted from each region. The rules of the competition specify that competitors may submit a Transport Canada Flight Test Report if they have taken their test and completed their licence between July 16, 2007 and July 15, 2008. Anyone wishing to compete who did not qualify under this option or wished to do so could take a Webster Flight Test with any authorized pilot examiner and submit that. The region that a competitor represents is dictated by where the flight test was taken.
The program was very successful with a significant increase in the number of competitors this year from all across Canada and the Webster team wishes to thank everyone for their interest and participation. Many of the marks were very close and indicated a high standard of excellence being maintained in the general aviation community.
