The ATR – Inside Out…………..

Stobart Air – Group Visit – Hangar 6 Maintenance Facility – Dublin Airport

Airliner Experience has obtained permission from Stobart Air and Dublin Airport Authority for an Enthusiasts Group Visit to the airlines Maintenance Facility at Hangar 6, Dublin Airport.

This exciting Tour will take place on Tuesday May 15th 2018.

The Visit

The reasonably ‘new-comer’ to the airline industry, Stobart Air has essentially been operating the regional branch of Aer Lingus. Up until now, the single aircraft type fleet has enabled the airline to become experts in turboprop commuter airliners, using the venerable ATR. The 42 & 72 series of ATR have carved out their own niche for the airline and are soon to be joined by Stobart’s first jet aircraft, the Embraer E-195.   

Once Airport Security has been accessed, the group will enter the enormous Hangar 6 during the busy maintenance programme. Stobart Air Engineering staff will be on hands to meet and greet. The group will enjoy a company presentation and Q&A session. The aim is to enjoy an ATR in close proximity with an overall inspection of the type. 

For this exciting opportunity to experience the often over-looked ATR regional aircraft, seen often performing services into and out of Dublin Airport but rarely explored up close in a hangar environment,   Don’t miss out – Join us !

If interested please let me know ASAP

Registration process will be through Airliner Experience.
