FunFly Aerosports Flying Club Breakfast Fly-In

Thanks to everyone who came to visit us in Clonbullogue for the FunFly Breakfast Fly-In. We lost count but at least 40 aircraft flew in and over 150 breakfasts were served! Credit to Mark Brereton for all the work behind the scenes and to Graham for manning the radio. Thanks also to SafeSky who kindly donated vouchers for a 1 month trial to SafeSky Premium to everyone that flew in. We didn’t catch everyone so if you didn’t get your voucher, please email info@funfly.ie with your aircraft registration and we’ll email it on to you.

Club operations continued throughout today and culminated in a First Solo Navex for Christopher Notre. A great day all round and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Here are a selection of photos from the day from Gerry Barron. If you have some more photos, please email them to mark@flyinginireland.com
