  • The Gold Cup Air Rally was the brainchild of two First Canadian Chapter 99s who had participated in Air Races in the U.S. and found racing very competitive and hard on the aircraft. They started the 99s Canadian Gold Cup Air Rally in 2000.  
  • The rally is a not a race. 
  • This is an all-women’s cross country challenge, flown in day VFR conditions only. The only competitive part is based on challenges such as aviation related questions, ground photos, calculation of fuel consumption, spot landing and more. 
  • There must be a minimum of 2 persons per aircraft, (pilot and co-pilot).
