Top Amateur Pilot - Webster Trophy

HISTORY

The John C. Webster Memorial Trophy Competition was established in 1932 by the late Dr. J. C. Webster of Shediac, New Brunswick, who wished to perpetuate the memory of his son, John.
John Webster lost his life in an aircraft accident at St. Hubert, Quebec, while practicing to represent Canada in an aerobatic flying competition The Trans-Canada Air Pageant. In July, 1931, a month before his death, John had represented Canada in his Curtiss-Reid Rambler in the King’s Cup Air Race in England.

THE COMPETITION TODAY

The Webster Memorial Trophy Competition is an annual event committed to declaring the “Top Amateur Pilot in Canada”. It was interrupted once by World War II and again in 1954 due to escalating administrative costs.
It is sponsored by Air Canada - Flight Operations and contributed to by numerous companies and organizations from the aviation sector. See our supporter pages.
Amateur pilots aspiring to a career in aviation can be proud to affirm that they have competed in one of Canada’s most prestigious aviation events.
