2019 ILAS Awards Programme Begins

29 Jul 2019 9:13 AM | ILAS Webmaster (Administrator)

It is time once again to invite all members to put forward their nominations for the 2019 ILAS Awards in each of the five categories:

1. Air Touring Award.

For the best journey by an ILAS member in command of any aircraft (any type, any registration) during the judging year (the 12 months  up to Monday 7th October), based on a log of the trip.

2. Homebuilt Award.

For the best new build ILAS permit type aircraft first flown during the judging year.

3. Vintage/Classic Restoration Award.

For the best re-build/renovation of an ILAS permit type aircraft that was returned to flight during the judging year.

4. John O’Loughlin Exemplary Airmanship Award

For the best display of airmanship in the operation of homebuilt and classic/vintage aircraft.

5. Aerobatics Award

For the best display of aerobatics from an ILAS member.

We are inviting members to make their nominations by email to chairman@ilas.ie not later than Sunday 20thOctober. You may also nominate yourself if you wish.

The ILAS Awards function / Christmas dinner is planned for Saturday 7th December 2019 at the Lucan Spa Hotel in Lucan, Co. Dublin.

Nominations are especially important for the Airmanship Award because the judges may not know of the incidents or events that demonstrated airmanship. Equally, nominations are important for the Air Touring Award and Aerobatics Award because the judges may not know about the event. 

When nominating a person for an award, please give reasons why you think that person deserves the award – the more detail the better. Nominations without supporting justification cannot be accepted. On the other hand, multiple nominations of the same person won’t confer any advantage. The Permit Secretary will be aware of first flights of C&V and Amateur-built aircraft if the paperwork has been submitted.

There is a separate FAQs document which you can access by clicking on the link below. If you are having trouble locating please send a mail to webmaster@ilas.ie.


Good luck to all entrants and please get those nominations in.
