The Rob Wildeboer Cup
A new prize in 2021 honoured a much-missed member of the team here at Goodwood. Rob Wildeboer worked in our aviation business for 35 years, beginning as a YTS apprentice and rising to be MD of the aviation business and most recently Flying School Manager. He was a hugely popular member of the team, and his sudden death was a devastating loss.
Rob was instrumental in establishing and curating the Freddie March Spirit of Aviation display. The Rob Wildeboer Cup will each year be awarded to the best restoration of an aircraft in the Freddie March Spirit of Aviation, as chosen by his colleagues. A fitting tribute to Rob’s lifelong passion for engineering.
