The annual IHFF Team Briefing took place recently at Baldonnel. The briefing is an opportunity for the team to discuss the year ahead and plan the events that we will be attending. A full list of our planned events is available on the Events page on our website. As always, attendance at these events is subject to weather, aircraft serviceability, crew availability etc. The aircraft will also be seen at various airfields around the country on training exercises as the team ramp up the summer season. The first public event we’ll be attending is the Birr Breakfast fly-in on 8th April.
Presentations on the day were given by our Chairman Michael Hickey who outlined the plans for the year. There were also representatives from flight crew, ground crew, engineering and operations. A huge amount of work goes on behind the scenes keeping our fleet in the air. The engineering team have been working hard over the winter completing the annuals on two of the Chipmunks and an upgrade to the brakes on Chipmunk 168.
