Finished - Patrick's Birthday Flight: Ireland @ EIDL

My Birthday Flight in Donegal, Ireland

Hello IFC! During this terrible pandemic, I have unfortunately had two COVID birthdays. Since last time I didn’t get to celebrate, I hope you will join me on a bit of a GA flight around my home county, Donegal in Ireland to celebrate my birthday! This flight will take us over the main tourism hotspots of the underrated county, and will be an excellent opportunity for some scenic views and screenshots! From over the tallest mountain in Donegal, Errigal, to the highest sea cliffs in Europe, Slieve League, this flight will not disappoint, and I hope you will join me on it! The airport which we will be departing and landing at was voted the most scenic airport in the years 2018 and 2019, as seen below:

Donegal Airport voted most scenic in the world for second year running (

Here is a quote from that report:

‘‘Voters pointed to its scenic surroundings and dramatic approach. “The view is spectacular! Mountains on one side and a beautiful rugged coastline dotted with islands and golden sandy beaches running adjacent to the runway,” said one voter, while another said it was the “most beautiful scenery I ever saw, with the beach on one side with crystal clear water and Mount Errigal standing tall on the other side”.’’

Of course you can! Which aircraft would you like to take?

I’d like a C172, but I’ll go for a C208 this time because I almost never use it.

There is only one spot left in this event. Should the need arise, I will open a ‘second spawn’ gate list, where you will spawn in slightly later once we move off the stand.

I’ll take the TBM
