Wanna try aeros?

Post by hum »

PLANE CRAZY Aerobatic Group

A NEW aerobatic group has been set up for PPL’S who want to become involved in aerobatic flying. This is a non- profit group where members share their resources, knowledge and aircraft to introduce and help New Blood into this sport.

In the past number of years Ireland has done remarkably well in both European and World aero competitions. The pilots involved have offered to give both their time and knowledge to increase the profile of Irish aerobatics and to help like-minded pilots. We are holding our first Aero Workshop on August 8th at Newcastle Airfield where beginners , improvers , and aerobatic plane owners can share flights, attend ground school, learn how to judge sequences etc..

If you are interested in becoming involved please e-mail, your name, address, phone number , and e-mail address to ….
planecrazyireland@mail.com
Places are Limited … First in …. early bird… and all that.!

I was always interested in aerobatics but only ever had a single ride in a Pitts with Eddie Goggins. Would definitely be interested but will probably spending that weekend dropping people out the side door if the weather is good. :(

This looks like the beginnings of a great revival

All Aerobatic pilots tend to be the most generous of men and women when it comes to making themselves available at their most enthusiastic to encourage and upskill the timid and the pusillanimous

In Ireland to-day, I would say that, beyond any doubt, HUM tops the
pyramid

A big thanks to Eddie, Anto, Johnny, Gerry and Dave (and anyone else involved) for a great event at Newcastle today. Excellent briefings and organisation was top-class.

Shame I had to head away early for work, but hope the rest of the day went as well as it started for everyone.

Thanks again to all.

I second that big thanks to Eddie, Anto, Johnny, Gerry and Dave (and anyone else involved) for giving their time, experience and of course their aircraft to the great aerobatic workshop at Newcastle today.

I enjoyed my trip in the Bucker Jungmann with Dave Bruton; one I wont forget for long time and its going in my logbook too!! :lol:

Weather turned out better than i had expected; Looking out the window this morning I didnt think it would be going ahead but it did and it was great for first event of its kind and I will definetly be back for more next time round; hopefully sooner rather than later.

Nice to meet people who all have a passion for flying and all things aviation; all with different storys to tell.

PS: I want that Russian Mig Bi-plane!!; Never saw anything like its performance and agility, ill be trawling the net for one of those now, watch this space!

Ill put up some of the pics I took of the event tomorrow

Thanks again for very enjoyable day

I'd like to echo all of the above. A huge thanks to everyone involved, John, Anto, Dave, Eddie & Hum etc - what a fantastic day and even the weather Gods were smiling at us!

Great flying, great company, great weather and a SUPERB location.

Looking forward to Plane Crazy II!!

Bump.

Ah lads....all I can say is fan-bloody-tastic.

Honestly it was so well run and really informative. Especially for a beginner like myself.

Thanks so much to everyone as named above (Anto, Gerry, Eddie, Dave, Paul, Farrell etcetcetc). Really enjoyed my trips with Gerry and Paul. The airfield is a great venue for it.

Some crazy a/c there, loved looking at that mig going for a spin.
