Birr Breakfast Fly-In 2020
***New Date*** A Breakfast Fly-In has been announced for Birr Airfield to take place on Sunday 30th August 2020. Birr is usually one of the first fly-in’s announced for the calendar early in the season but with the COVID-19 pandemic almost all the General Aviation events have been cancelled for the year. The breakfast fly-in’s have become very popular amongst the aviation community in Ireland for all pilots to call in and catch up on all the gossip and have a fantastic feed. With so few events taking place and restrictions regarding social distancing, many pilots have had a limited chance to get any airtime this year so this will encourage them to get out a pay a visit to one of the friendliest airfields in the Midlands.
The annual Birr Airshow has been cancelled for this year and hopefully will return in 2021 with many exciting acts performing. The Team Raven display team with their six Van’s RV-8’s will be making an appearance on the morning for the breakfast Fly-In and will put on an excellent display as usual. Hopefully, the weather will be suitable for many aircraft to be able to visit from around the country.
