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:
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”.’’

Airport: EIDL (Carrickfinn/Donegal Airport)
Please spawn in in any of the GA aircraft, the airport cannot cater to larger aircraft.
The flight shall begin with a takeoff from EIDL. We will continue on runway heading until we reach Glencolumbkille, which will be where we find Sleve League. From there we will turn back north until we reach Errigal. We will continue north until we reach the most northerly point in Ireland, Malin Head or Banba’s Crown. From here we will turn to the west to begin our approach into Carrickfinn airport once again.
Please follow my cruising altitude, speed and heading for the best possible experience.
