The 2019 Webster Memorial Trophy Competition will be hosted by the Moncton Flight College August 19-24th.
The Webster is committed to finding “Canada’s Top Amateur Pilot”. It has operated since its inception in 1932, interrupted by World War II and again in 1954.
J. Goss and Associates is a supporter of the Webster!
The competition is named after John Webster Jr., a civilian pilot who participated in the 1931 Trans-Canada Air Pageant. In July 1931, John flew his Curtiss-Reid Rambler representing Canada in the King’s Cup Air Race in England. A month later, while in St. Hubert, Québec practising for an aerobatic competition as part of the pageant, John Webster was involved in a fatal aircraft accident. The following year, John’s father (Dr. John C. Webster, of Shediac, New Brunswick) established the John C. Webster Memorial Trophy Competition to perpetuate his son’s memory.
Every year year there are 9 winners!
