Our pilots will explain how an aircraft flies, what causes turbulence and all those unsettling sensations that you feel during flight. Then our psychologist will help you to understand fear and teach you how to reduce your anxiety. Finally we will all go on a 45 minute flight from Dublin airport to put theory into practice!

    The course starts at The Maldron Hotel close to Dublin Airport at 0800 and the day finishes after the flight at 1630. Refreshments and a buffet carvery are included. Complimentary parking is available at the hotel. The price for the course is €299 including the flight. This course is available for booking now, take the first step towards flying with confidence!

    If you want to bring someone with you on the day for the flight only, you are able to book them on for €149.

    Flight of Hope 3rd to 6th April 2015

    In March 2013 our daughter Christine was diagnosed with a brain tumour. She has undergone an urgent operation to remove the tumour followed by radiotherapy, chemotherapy and continues to fight this devastating disease with every day bringing its own challenges.

    Christine and our family would really appreciate your support for The Brain Tumour Charity as cancer touches most families at some time in their lives. Every year this charity funds pioneering research into better ways to earlier diagnose and treat brain tumours and have given fantastic support to our family as they do for so many others.

    Members of the Kernan Valley Flying Club and myself, Raphael, intend to fly around the coast of Ireland (weather permitting) on the Easter weekend from the 3rd to 6th April with as many aircraft and crews as possible.

    Our journey of almost 1000 miles will start at Newcastle Co Down and follow the coast clockwise round Ireland, stopping at as many airfields along the way as possible (our route and full updates will be posted on Kernan Aviation’s Facebook page) to accept donations and raise awareness of the increase in cancer in UK and Ireland. So if you see an aircraft overhead think DONATE!

    So how can you DONATE?

    Donations can be made through Justgiving directly or via our Facebook page or website (see below) where you will find links to make the donation process even easier. You can also give donations to any of the pilots and crew who are members of the Kernan Valley Flying Club.

    If you live in the UK you can also text your donation.

    Example

    To donate £5 text KVFC56 £5 on 70070

    To donate £10 text KVFC56 £10 on 70070

    To donate £50 text KVFC56 £50 on 70070

    Don't forget to tick the gift aid box to maximize your donation.

    https://www.justgiving.com/teams/KVFC

    http://www.kernanaviation.co.uk

    Together we can make a difference.

    All donations from our Justgiving page will go straight to the relevant Charities, these will be gratefully received for further research into this devastating disease and to provide care in the local community.

    Thanking you in anticipation,

    The O’Carroll Family/Kernan Valley Flying Club

    Spanish Point Airfield, Co. Clare

    Spanish Point airfield is open to visitors on Saturday 30th May, weather permitting. Aligning with the NMAI Around Ireland Rally, the club has decided to hold their Fly In on the Saturday.

    This grass strip is about 450m long and the field is generally dry. However, if there is prolonged rain during the days preceeding the event, it may be too wet 'under-wheels' to hold the event. It is relatively easy to find directly south of Miltown Malbay and to the east of the Spanish Point Road. The bright red wind sock pin points the spot.

    Camping areas are provided and festivities shall continue after the end of VFR in the town of Miltown Malbay!

    Enniskillen Airport, Co. Fermanagh
    ****  Air Racing is returning to Enniskillen Airport  ****
    In July 2013 the Airport hosted a round of the Royal Areo Club Air Racing. Pilots and their race planes travelled from Ireland, England and Wales to participate in an event which saw them flying a low level course around Lower Lough Erne. Due to the success of this event the Royal Aero Club have confirmed their return on the 18th and 19th July 2015.
    Air racing in the UK is certainly as old as aviation itself and the magnificent trophies competitors race for each year carry some pioneers in the history of flight. Unlike aerobatics, handicap racing around a 25 mile course provides a spectacle unrivalled in the UK general aviation scene. Whether pilot, enthusiast or spectator the annual series of races around the UK provide a great opportunity to experience real close quarter racing.
    Further details will be announced as they become available.

    Venue: National Museum of Ireland: Decorative Arts & History

    This August, event organisers at the National Museum of Ireland: Decorative Arts & History are delighted to welcome renowned authors and aviation historians Maurice Byrne and Guy Warner, among others, to take part in a series of talks on Ireland’s aviation heritage.

    Find out all about the Royal Air Force and Irish army aviation down through the years as the experts reveal air craft designs, jet and missile developments along with their knowledge of the history of transport and passenger airplanes in Ireland all the way back to 1909.

    With a look at key players and aircraft owners in Ireland throughout history, this morning of talks is a must for aviation enthusiasts and those eager to learn how aviation helped to shape the Irish economy and how it played a central role in international aviation given our status as an island on the edge of Europe and the Atlantic Ocean.

    Cork Airport Control Tower

    As part of its on-going commitment to enhance aviation safety, the Irish Aviation Authority has organised three Air Traffic Control Open Days for pilots at its air traffic control facilities in , Shannon, Dublin and Cork.

    The Open Days are intended to give general aviation pilots, including those who have recently qualified or are undertaking training courses, an insight into how air traffic is managed by the IAA. Information will also be given on the part General Aviation activities play in day-to-day operations and the services that can be provided to pilots.

    The Open Days will feature presentations by IAA Air Traffic Control staff on air traffic operations, including airspace structure, services provided and flight plan requirements, as well as outlining information on some of the operational and technical innovations being progressed by the IAA. There will also be orientation visits to the air traffic control towers (Dublin, Shannon and Cork) and air traffic control operations rooms (Dublin and Shannon), which will demonstrate the operations and tasks of the ACC staff. Representatives from the Aeromedical and Personnel Licensing departments of the IAA's Safety Regulation Directorate will also participate.

    This lecture is under the auspices of the Royal Aeronautical Society Republic of Ireland Branch and all are welcome (no charge). The lecturer is excellent and his knowledge extends to the often colourful after-life (of those who survived).

     

    SPEAKER:    Mr. Joe Gleeson

    TITLE:  "Irish airmen of World War I“

     

    SYNOPSIS:

    Several of the highest scoring scout (fighter) aces of the First World War, such as Mannock, Hazel and McElroy, were Irish. Many critical wartime aeronautical developments were made by Irishmen, e.g. John Cyril Porte's flying boats and Neville Florian Usborne's airships.

    Many Irishmen who served with the RFC, RNAS and RAF in World War I went on to play a notable role in aviation history in Chile, Lithuania and Ireland during the inter-war years, with yet others still attaining senior rank in the RAF in World War II.

    The lecture would seek to address the contribution of the Irish aces to the Allied cause, but will focus on a number of squadrons with a significant Irish contingent.

    It will also seek to briefly cover Huston's role in Chile and the wartime service of the early Irish Air Corps pilots and observers from an RAF background, e.g. William Jasper McSweeney, Charles F Russell, William Percy Delamere, James C Fitzmaurice, Wilfrid Hardy and renowned Camel ace Oscar Heron.

    Come and find out more about a Pilot Career at British Airways

    Here at British Airways we are growing. More opportunities to join our pilot team are now present. We are continually introducing new aircraft including the Airbus A380 and revolutionary Boeing 787. We are actively recruiting now and for 2016 we envisage over 350 pilots joining the fraternity, with over half of these vacancies requiring direct entry onto our longhaul fleets.

    We're coming out to meet experienced pilots who are interested in finding out more about what we have to offer in what we hope will be a relaxed and informal setting. The events will be run by the BA pilot recruitment team, and a small team of line pilots who are keen to meet you and to talk about life as a pilot with us.

    This roadshow will follow a different style to previously. There will be a rolling 'drop in' opportunity available during the day as well as two set presentation times. Depending on the number of people present at any one time we will answer queries individually or through a wider reaching presentation. We have planned presentations at 10:00 and 16:00 with a 2 hour lunchtime drop in session 12:00 - 14:00 for general questions. Please do come and join us. If you can please book for the session you wish to attend so that we can ensure we have sufficient people on hand to give you the personal service you deserve.

    The presentations are aimed at experienced pilots including those who hold type ratings on any of the aircraft BA currently operates or has on order.

    At this time, we are not seeking attendees who are low-hour or trainee pilots, but if you fall into one of these categories we'd be delighted to meet you at one of the other events we support including Pilot Careers Live, formerly the Flyer Professional Flight Training Exhibition.

    We really look forward to meeting you. Don't worry about dressing up for the occasion, we'll be going for a smart casual approach to keep the event relaxed!
