Spanish Point Fly-in

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!

Spanish Point Airfield Location:

N 52 50.813′
W 009 24.871′
R 24/06
Freq: 123.30
