L. Paul Soucy Award Winner Announced

Shaun Brautigan Received The Most Total Points During The 2017 Contest Season

The IAC is extending congratulations to Shaun Brautigan who is recognized as the IAC competition pilot who achieved the highest percentage of points possible during the 2017 contest season. The criteria for the award is that a pilot must compete in three or more contests, one of which must be the U.S. National Aerobatic Championships. The trophy will be awarded to Shaun during the IAC Gathering of Members dinner on Friday night, July 27th, in the Nature Center at EAA AirVenture, Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

In the 2017 contest season, Shaun flew in a staggering total of nine contests. He placed first in Sportsman at the 2017 U.S. National Aerobatic Championships in his beautiful silver and red Extra 330LX N341LX. For the season, he finished with an overall average of 84.91%.

Contests Flown:

  • Snowbird Classic
  • Carolina Boogie
  • Sebring 75!
  • Armed Forces Memorial Aerobatic Contest
  • Bear Creek Bash
  • Michigan Aerobatic Open
  • U.S. National Aerobatic Championships
  • Mason Dixon Clash
  • IAC East Open Championship

The award was conceived and donated by L. Paul Soucy of Louisville, Kentucky. Mr. Soucy was one of the first members of IAC and its Board of Directors. His objective in sponsoring the award was to recognize not only skilled pilots but also those who supported a minimum number of contests as well as IAC’s premier championships events.
