GoldLindyCustomized Airplane Awards: The Contemporary category judging group of VAA has chosen to recognize aircraft which have been updated to be used as personal transportation aircraft while retaining the spirit of the EAA Vintage Aircraft Association.

These aircraft can be modified with newer engines, propellers, avionics and other modern features to improve speed, reliability and safety, and are to have been manufactured January 1, 1956 thru December 31, 1970. The awards are a Gold, Silver and Bronze Lindy.

All other judging criteria will remain the same as other categories.
