Ballyboy Fly-In 2019

*** Rescheduled to 4th August 2019 ***


Ballyboy Fly-in and Family Fun Day 2019

Our planning is continuing for this year’s Fly-in and Family Fun Day in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland so be sure to put Sunday June 2nd into your diary for a great day out. So far we have raised over EUR50,000 for this great charity and this year we are planning some excellent displays and entertainment for you to enjoy.

Last year we welcomed over 1,000 visitors and dozens of visiting aircraft to the airfield in glorious weather, making this a memorable day out for all who attended. 2019 is Ballyboy Airfield’s 25th birthday, so we will have something extra to celebrate too!

Keep checking back for more details here and on our website for the latest updates!
