The UK paraplanner resource service has launched the Paraplanner of The Year and the Rising Star awards to increase the recognition of the industry nationwide.
The awards are based on paraplanners answering 20 technical questions and writing a short piece about their role as a paraplanner.
The Paraplanner.com co-founder Richard Allum says: “This award will give paraplanners the chance to increase their profile and show the industry what they can do. This is similar to the Australian award and will soon become the ultimate recognition of a paraplanners excellence. To be the winner of the first award will be something special”.
Co-founder Martin Vaughan adds: “This is something we’ve been planning for some time and will increase the industry’s knowledge about the important work paraplanners do”.
