Craughwell Fly-In

The group of ILAS members at Craughwell look forward to welcoming visitors to their fly-in on the August bank holiday weekend.  This is becoming a favourite event for ILAS members and always manages to draw a good crowd.  This year promises to be as good if not better.

Camping on the field will be possible.

ILAS are planning to bring their recently acquired test equipment to the event and there will be a demonstration of dynamic prop balancing. Registration and PPR from Seamus Coughlan on Phone 091 848067  and 087 1208393.
