Limerick Flying Club Fly-In 2017

By Limerick Flying Club.

On behalf of the club, the committee would like to acknowledge the support and efforts of many people who made the 2017 Fly-in the most successful in many years. We were honoured that The Irish Coast Guard visited us with EI-ICA / Rescue 115. The crew were wonderful in taking the time from their busy and stressful schedule to spend an hour or so with us including giving a guided tour of their Sikorsky.

We also acknowledge the attendance and support of the Limerick Civil Defence whose services we are glad to say were not required. On the ground Karen Burkley spent hours slaving in our outdoor kitchen feeding the masses with great assistance from her daughters.

We also acknowledge the help from the airfield owners – the Lehane family for allowing us hold the fly-in and for relocating their cattle to allow for parking (both aircraft and cars). We had a fantastic turnout with some seventeen aircraft of all shapes and sizes visiting. Special mention for two visitors from Devon and another two crews from Haverfordwest. Thanks to our many club members who turned up in force to help out on the day. Finally, we have to acknowledge the Weather Gods delivered near perfect conditions for us. Amen! Until 2018 – fly safe!

The Club are also running a competition on their Facebook Page to win a €100 gift voucher, see here for details.

Here are a selection of photos from the day.
