This year we have increased the number of Professional Paraplanner Awards, introducing three new categories in order to give more paraplanners, as well as administrators, the opportunity to enter an award.
The 2019 Awards are:
Paraplanner of the Year – In-house
Paraplanner of the Year – Outsourced
Paraplanner Team of the Year
