Baron Hilton Cup
One of the reasons for the trophy is to encourage flights that qualify for the Barron Hilton Cup. Barron Hilton Cup flights are FAI triangular flights of at least 400 km (248.56 statute miles). The Barron Hilton Cup points are calculated using a handicap so that all sailplane types have an equal chance of winning. You learn more about the Hilton Cup here:
