EGAB is 155 ft amsl and not at sea level.
I have been speaking to airport ops at EGAB at 10am this morning re obtaining a slot for Sunday. They said Enniskillen does not have a problem with water-logging. Newtownards does!
As far as Enniskillen ops are concerned it is all systems go for Sunday and weather prognosis is looking good.
I'd sooner spend 75mins flying to EGAB rather than three or so hours each way in a car to go to Salthill (from Limerick). That said an awful pity about the clash of dates.
That said add to the mix thousands of people arriving by road - I think EGAB is the less stressful and more fun option. I have been to Salthill Show two years ago. I have never been to the Enniskillen one. Variety is the spice of life.
Thanks for heads up. Was doing just that this morning when I found out about the incorrect info posted here.
when ever I am in an airport I tend to grab a fresh bottle of water for the flight. I am curious to see if someone tries to confiscate it when I go through one of the regional airport scanners. Since the new 30ml regs I have not had the opportunity at somewhere like Galway where you are made go through the scanner and search routine to test the applicability to GA.
I was in Galway about 3 weeks ago in a Eurostar. From airside we were sent thru what looked like the crew door. On our return to the aircraft we retraced our steps via the crew door, paid our landing fees etc and then proceeded to the aircraft. We were hand searched but No scanner, removal of belts, shoes etc. All very suprising and civilised.
Also everyone is talking about Galway and Enniskillen. Has no-one heard about the Newtownards airshow on Saturday. You could fly in for Newtownards, stay overnight and then fly onto Galway or Enniskillen, whichever takes your fancy
