There's a club there that fly two ICP Savannah's which are great fun to fly. If you're not interested in flying in the club, talk...

Re: looking for Shares/ private rental

Hi flyer100,

If you're interested in flying a 2-seater, I hear FunFly Aerosports at Limetree are getting a Group A Savannah S shortly that may be available to fly. Contact details are at https://funflyaerosports.ie/ . It's not as fast as a Cessna 172 but it's way more fun to fly :)

Regards,
Mark

Re: looking for Shares/ private rental

Hi PaulW,

It depends what type of aircraft you're looking for but generally I find word of mouth and Facebook are the two most popular ways of finding an aircraft share.

Regards,
Mark
