Top Gun Pilot Standings

Welcome to the Top Gun Standings Page!  The mission of our club is to help pilots improve their pilot skills through education, practice and the sharing of information into the art of navigation.  One of the ways we create fun is to provide a monthly competition for club members.  Anytime you get a group of pilots trying to navigate into a set point, the opportunity to compare results occurs.  By placing a point value to a performance, a pilot creates an average.  (View Wall of Fame)

Our club provides the results and standings here.  There are three types of results which can be found here.  They are as follows:

  • Monthly Flying Event Results
  • Top Gun Pilot Averages Ranking
  • Top Gun Annual Club Champion

Monthly Flying Event Results:

Each month, any pilot who participates in the flight receives a result for each of the individual tasks called.  Those individual tasks are added together to determine a winner for that month.  This provides those in attendance each month the joy of knowing how they did in comparison to the other pilots participating that month.
