FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

Sligo Aeronautical Club is the present club which followed the original Sligo North West Aero Club which was formed in 1975 with an airfield at Annaghmore near Collooney, Co. Sligo.
Our Aims are to promote and carry on the business of flight training and to provide suitable aircraft for members holding a pilot's license.
Our first training aircraft - a Rallye MS880B (EI-AYV) - was soon upgraded to a succession of Cessnas and Pipers. We currently operate a Cessna 152 (EI-BIB) and an IFR Cessna 172 (EI-SAC).
We are a Registered Training Facility under the European Joint Aviation Requirements (JAR) and approved by the Irish Aviation Authority to provide all aspects of Private Pilot Training.
