Hi All
On behalf of the NMAI, I can't apologise enough.
When we organised the NMAI/Flying in Ireland fly for july, back in May we hadn't realised that you had already got there ahead of us.( it definitely was not on our minds to have them Clash!!)
Delighted that you have rescheduled and Hope to see you all in Clonbullogue and again in Ardfert.
All the best
Higgie

Thanks for the warm welcome guys, I really needed it after a lengthy flight in the Cub! Wish we could have stayed longer but it seemed that everything had been scheduled for this particular weekend...

On behalf of the crew at Ardfert airfield, I wish to thank everybody who came to our fly-in, especially the pilots who travelled a long distance and helped make it such a wonderful week end

A very special word of thanks to Dave Bruton for his exhilarating performance on both days with the Stampe.

Also to the hellicopter owners for giving the locals some heli rides, and to the model heli and aeroplane men for their brilliant displays, our atc and stewards.

A big thank you to the ladies for the excellent catering and to the couple who slaved over the bar-b-que, a big thank you.

Finally thanks to Jim and Martin for the disco and flight simulator. Planning for 2012 already !!
