Steve Hunt Memorial Trophy

 2018 michAEL STALKER

  Michael has been an inspiration to people at Strathaven Airfield with his adventures in a Quantum 912: such as Strathaven to Land's End and back in a   single day, to the Faroe Islands and now from Coast-to-Coast-to-Coast in the USA. With his c2c2c2018 blog, I am sure he is now passing that       enthusiasm and inspiration around the world.

2006 Eddie McCallum

Eddie is leader of the Geordie Moth squadron, who are probably the most travelled microlighters around. By 2005,they had been to no less than 100 European airfields in 23 countries by the time they got back from France and the Iberian peninsular. This year, Eddie and Jason Williams, together with Martin Moseley and his son Neil, followed the Danube from its source to the Black Sea in their trusty SkyRangers, visiting no less than 16 countries in 16 days,and covering 4500 miles. Their dedication, organisation and enthusiasm have taught us that a microlight can get anywhere, from the largest international airports to the tiniest strip; from the sun-baked plains of Iberia to the Arctic Circle; from the Black Sea to the Alps.
