Win a private display from the Trig aerobatic team at your home airfield!

We are excited to launch a NEW Pilot Magazine competition in association with the Trig Aerobatic Team.

The 8.33 Challenge is a fun navigation exercise that all pilots can enter, no matter what you fly. We’re looking for a touch of creative thinking and sharp photography to win a great prize.

Richard Grace, Team Leader of the Trig Aerobatic Team shared with Pilot, “like our sponsor Trig Avionics we are passionate about flying, and would encourage Pilot readers to get involved, its really simple”.

The challenge

To mark the launch of Trig’s new compact 8.33kHz VHF radio, we are inviting you to fly either 8.3 miles, 83 miles or even 830 miles from your home base, (you decide) and take a winning photograph that will be novel, engaging or plain impressive and wow the judges. We hope you’ll have fun planning your flight and taking part.


To enter you must submit your winning picture, indicate it’s exact distance from your home airfield and why its a worthy winner in no more than 50 words.
