Another Youth Masters is in the books. I was talking with Kent Porter about this great event last week. Kent put together an update to let everyone at FG know what went down this year. Thanks Kent!
The Youth Masters at the world famous Triple Tree Aerodrome flying site is where aerobatic pilots up to 16 years old are given the opportunity to compete while flying identical aircraft, and most of all to make friends while learning about this great hobby!
The sole purpose of this competition is to develop sportsmanship/fellowship among young pilots and give them the chance to compete on an equal level.
We would like to express our appreciation to the volunteers and families that took precious time from their everyday lives to share the Triple Tree Aerodrome’s facility, The Home of Fun, Fellowship & Hospitality!
This year’s event took place on the 26th and 27th of July. Overall, there were 26 pilots flying in the Triple Tree Youth Masters 2014 contest. In no particular order they were: Alex West, Ben Jenkins, Benton Griffin, Blake Rykard, Carson Brinkley, Connor Barnes, Dayton Jessen, Dylan Flowers, Evan Turner, Henru Greyling, Henry Alexander, Jacob Alexander, James Stewart, Joseph Thibodeau, Joshua McCreary, Luke Sewing, Luke Young, Mitch Johnson, Nicholas Alexander, Preston Brittian, Stephen Eller, TJ Jonhson, Tradd Rhides, Travis Speed, Wyatt Lyons and Zan Iqbal.
These pilots flew a grand total of 232 judged sequences. Wyatt Lyons won the Basic class. There were 20 pilots in Basic.
Thanks to Kent for the update and stay tuned for more info on next year's event!
