With the recent run of good weather, there have been some opportunities to get out flying and dust the cobwebs off after a particularly poor December and early January. Last week Frank Grealish from IrishAirPics.com captured these fantastic photos of ICP Savannah EI-GWI flown by Michael Comyn. The camera ship was Maule MX-7 EI-GER flown by Sé Pardy. Both aircraft and a few others gathered for an impromptu fly-in to Tullamore Airstrip.
EI-GWI is one of four ICP Savannahs operated by FunFly Aerosports Flying Club based at Clonbullogue. They offer EASA LAPL and PPL training at an affordable rate, for more details see their website at www.funfly.ie
