Flying in Galway

EI-MCG-club-aircraftGalway saw its first aircraft in 1912, nine years after the Wright Brothers’ first powered flight. For more than seventy years Galway people, who share a love of flying, have come together to provide the resources and support needed to sustain a popular flying club on the outskirts of the city. The Galway Flying Club, resident at Galway Airport, is today a successful and vibrant voluntary club that provides excellent facilities for its members and encourages the next generation of enthusiasts to take up aeroplane flying as a leisure activity.
