Club Wings Awards
year at their Annual Awards dinner,
the Aero Club presents a number of
awards and trophies. All sections
of the Aero Club may nominate recipients
for the Aero Club Silver
Wings and Aero Club
Gold Wings awards. These
are very prestigious awards and nominees
must have had a noteworthy impact
on their sport on a national basis
and over a continuous and extended
period of time.
2006, PASA put together a panel who
consider the nominations received
and put forward to the Aero Club
those that meet the following criteria:
awards are to be respected for
the prestigious accolade that they
Aero Club is a national body -
these awards are intended to be
bestowed upon people who have had
an impact on the sport on a national
basis (not just at one local drop
people who have been nominated
by members from more than one drop
zone around the country will be
considered for the awards (thereby
showing their far-reaching impact).
for Gold Wings must be people who
have been a force within the sport
and on a national basis for a period
of at least 10 continuous years.
for Silver Wings are for people
who have been a force within the
sport for at least 5 continuous
years and have provided exceptional
service or run exceptional projects
during that time.
With the above criteria in mind, we
ask for nominations for the 2008 Aero
Club Gold Wings and Aero Club Silver
Wings awards. Nominations must be accompanied
by a brief (one paragraph) explanation
outlining why you believe this person
deserves the award. Please be certain
that the person you wish to nominate
fulfils the criteria listed above.
Nominations for people who do no meet
the criteria and/or are not accompanied
by a brief explanation cannot be considered.
Without the involvement of the skydiving
community, we cannot ensure that those
who deserve the honours, receive them
- please make every effort to get involved
and take a few minutes to nominate
someone who has had a positive impact
on your skydiving career.
Email nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 021-553-3398. Nominations
will be accepted until close of business
on Wednesday, 8 October 2008. All nominees
will be considered by the panel, which
consists of Mark Bellingan, Hugh Newman,
Peter Lawson, Long Pete Mauchan and
Manuel Cordeiro. They will put the
final name/s forward to the Aero Club.
