Squawk 7000 – FunFly Breakfast Fly-In EICL March 5th
On this extended episode of Squawk 7000, we flew into 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 Graham Brearton for handling the radio. Thanks also to SafeSky, who kindly donated vouchers for a one-month trial to SafeSky Premium to everyone who flew in.
In this episode, we hear from pilots “old” and new and those restoring their aircraft or building them from new. And what does it take to get a Class 2 medical Aviation? Medical Examiner Dr Kieran Murphy gives us a few tips and talks about his flying. Gay Tracy introduces us to Piper Cup owner Jerry Dwyer; Ronan and Daniel Coleman talk about flying and building an aircraft as a father and son team. Mark Dwyer tells us more about the FunFly Wings awards, and if you need a windsock for your airfield, we talk with Suzanne Reilly from Ireland’s Windsock Company. Enda Mc Neill walks about restoring a Cessna 170 and getting it ready to fly, and Colm Wright and Sé Pardy mark our card for the Birr Fly-in on April 15th.
