Sligo Aero Club prides itself on a long record (since 1975) of expert and safe flight instruction. With an interest in aviation as the common denominator, it is an ideal environment in which to initially test your enthusiasm for flying or achieve your objective of becoming a recreational pilot (PPL). For those of you whose interest is in becoming a professional airline pilot, we provide a solid basis of practical instruction and good airmanship – using Cessna aircraft.
Sligo Aero Club is run for members by members on a voluntary, non-profit and part-time basis.
We are located on the Northwest coast at Sligo Airport, Strandhill, Co Sligo – a modern Regional Airport with full ATC, a Terminal Building, restaurant, ample parking facilities and car hire. It has a 1200m tarmac runway with lighting, PAPI’s, NDB and DME.
The adjacent areas have spectacular scenery and the coasts to the North and West form part of the Wild Atlantic Way.
We are home to quite a selection of aircraft – old and new – as well as the Coastguard Search and Rescue facility, which use Sikorsky S92 helicopters – as well as frequent aerobatic and parachute operations.
