New Irish Aviation Podcast Launched!

Squawk7000 is a new Irish Aviation podcast series that has recently been launched and is available to listen and subscribe on your favourite podcast platform. If you’re involved in aviation in Ireland, as a professional or enthusiast then you might like to join us here for a new Podcast Series – Squawk 7000 – each edition brings you news, interviews and insight into what’s happening around the airfields, airports and businesses associated with the topic we love – Flying. We also have occasional longer chats with some of the people who have a lifetime of stories to tell from their first flights to flights they’ll never forget. So if it’s gyrocopters, microlights, ultralights, singles, twins or jets, subscribe to Squawk7000 and join us for the next episode.

The podcast is produced by Michael Comyn and Mark Dwyer. Michael is a broadcaster and has been on the radio at some time or another since 1979, 3 years after his first solo at the age of 16 in EI-BAT at IONA in Dublin Airport. His love of aviation goes back to growing up near Shannon Airport, Cork Airport and Dublin Airport and he has over the years flown fixed-wing and helicopters. He runs the FlyFearless, fear of flying course which over ten years helped over 3,500 people get back in the air. After a spell away from flying himself, he has returned to recreational flying the ICP Savannah aircraft with FunFly in Limetree.

Mark is an airline pilot flying the Boeing 737 for a major European airline. In addition, he is also a Type Rating Instructor, Type Rating Examiner and Base Training Captain on the B737. Outside of commercial flying, Mark still enjoys flying light aircraft from the smallest 3 Axis microlights up to heavier singles. He is also an instructor and EASA Examiner on single engines and a UK CAA Examiner. He flies the Chipmunk for the Irish Historic Flight Foundation (IHFF) and has run this website since 2002.

More information about this new podcast is available from www.squawk7000.ie and we’re always looking for new people to talk to. You can contact us at news@squawk7000.ie . You can subscribe to the podcast here to ensure you get the latest episodes straight to your device. And do us a favour – tell your friends too!
