Wings International

The Royal Federation of Aero Clubs of Australia holds the Australian Light Aircraft Championships each year. The winners of this Championship compete in the WINGS INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION between Australia and New Zealand. This event was commenced in 1992 and is held alternately in Australia and New Zealand.

Each team consists of six pilots and the events are:

  • Formation Flying,
  • Spot Landing,
  • Forced Landing and
  • Aerobatics

Competition Flying is a proven method of improving a pilot’s standards and maintaining currency and is widely promoted throughout Australia by the Royal Federation of Aero Club of Australia on a Club, Interclub and National level, and in New Zealand through the New Zealand Aero Club movement.
