Aerobatic Gift Flight

Post by dhblewis »

Is there anywhere in Ireland you can get an aerobatic Gift/test flight? My brother has always wanted to be in an aerobatic plane but has no license and his birthday is coming up.

dhblewis,

There are no specified aerobatics flight schools on the island.
But if you can find an FTO that has a C150 Aerobat it's probably the best idea. I think the NFC have one (at least they did) and i think there's one in Abbeyshrule aswell.

Skytrace in Weston used to have a YAK52 but that was years ago... but they do have a robin thats aerobatic but i think they refuse to do loops in it as it's a training aircraft for PPL's.

If you find yourself in the UK near Kemble airfield, the Ultimate High are pretty amazing with an option of two aircraft. I flew the extra with them and it was an amazing experience - especially the part where i was chasing another plane :D

But hopefully with the demand for aeros in this country sky rocketing at the moment, there will be a school set up in the next year or so......

Maybe some of the guys/girls that were at the Plane Crazy Day in EINC can tell you some more.

Best of luck
Regards,
