We would like to invite you to help us celebrate 20 years at Spanish Point with a Fly-in on the 11th/12th June 2011. After the success of Spanish Point 2010, we are delighted to be organising the 20th Birthday Party. We hope that the weather will be a little better and that all of our friends can make the journey for the weekend.
As more details become available, we will keep you updated.
This grass strip is about 550m long and the field is generally dry. It is relatively easy to find directly south of Miltown Malbay and to the east of the Spanish Point Road. The bright red wind sock pin points the spot.
Spanish Point Airfield Location:
N 52 50.813'
You've just reminded me that I was there 20 years ago when Brendan Smith opened EISP. It was the weekend before I was starting my Leaving Cert!! I even got a hop in an R22 in return for a sketch I had been doing there.
The Luscombe and I will do our best to be there to celebrate your 20 years.
New Date 11/12 June 2011
OnTheNumbers - I have some pictures, all will be available soon.
If you have any stories or memories of Spanish Point Airfield over the past 20 years, please let me know.
The Iolar has been invited to attend and a request has been submitted to the Air Corps for a similar visit to last year.
Accommodation is available in Armada Hotel and The Central (Miltown Malbay).
David: EISP was opened by Brendan Daly, and we're looking forward to a great weekend.
Aer Lingus Charitable Foundation have confirmed that Spanish Point is on the 'Iolar Schedule 2011.' Spanish Point is very proud to be the first event for the Iolar scheduled after the Aer Lingus 75th celebrations.
A BBQ is planned for the Armada Hotel on the Saturday night (20Eur a head). This will follow on from the IAA 'lifetime contribution to aviation' awards which are being presented during the evening.
See you all there,
*(all weather and crew dependant of course)
A programme is being produced for the event, which will include mentions for all our generous sponsors. If you would like to be included, please let us know.
