Squawk 7000 – Kinsale Aviation Festival 2021

On Saturday and Sunday, November 27/28, 2021.

Kinsale’s inaugural aviation festival, established to promote Ireland’s rich and extensive aviation history, will take place on Saturday and Sunday, November 27/28, 2021. The event is being organised by the Flying Poet Aviation Café and Bookshop in Kinsale and supported by the Irish Historic Flight Foundation (IHFF), Goodbody Stockbrokers and Avolon…I spoke during the week to one of the organisers, Joe Gill, who also expanded on the state of aviation in Ireland post-covid. It’s a great insight from an expert analyst. Joe also talks about his involvement with the Irish Historic Flight Foundation (IHFF).
