Fokker 100 Aviation Enthusiasts flight announced for 18th May

On Monday the 18th of May there is the opportunity to join “Airliner Experience” for an enthusiasts flight on board a Fokker 100 of Croatian airline Trade Air. Airline Experience had an enthusiasts flight on a Trade Air Fokker 100 in 2013 which was an amazing event with the performance capabilities of the 22 year old 109 seat jetliner displayed during the 40 minute flight.

 The date is only three weeks away so if you are interested in flying on board this flight please contact Aidan (his details below)

Date : Monday 18th May
Location : Dublin International Airport
Time : 12:00
Flight time : 40 minutes
Destination : Irish Airspace in order to have the freedom to demonstrate the aircraft performance with low level flight, acceleration and deceleration, banking, spirited take-off and landing with full flight commentary by pilots etc.
Cost : €149 pp (depending on numbers this price may be reduced)
Ground Event : Upon return to DUB we hope to have an internal inspection of cabin and cockpit and external inspection of wings, undercarriage, etc. on live ramp with flight crew – 45 minutes. 

Since our last enthusiasts flight with the Trade Air Fokker 100 the aircraft have been repainted with an eye catching new livery and interior.

So for a chance to fly on this rare type and experience the flight performance of a mid size commercial jet aircraft being put through its paces, contact Aidan for more details.
