Language Travel Ireland is proud to announce that a father and son, from one of our farmstays in County Limerick, will take to the skies on July 19th! Bray is a beautiful seaside town located on the East Coast of Ireland just south of Dublin city. Gerry Humphreys and son Harry are creating a piece of air show history this month, as they both take to the skies for the annual Bray Air Display.
One of Ireland’s top aerobatic pilots, Gerry Humphreys, is a former RAF pilot-turned organic beef farmer will be taking his home-built two-seater ‘flying cow’ to the skies on July 19th! Gerry’s son, Harry (age 21), will be making his Bray Air Display debut this year, in the titanium-built ‘Mini-Mig’ plane, having first secured his private pilot licence on his 17th birthday. Named after Harry Ferguson, the first Irishman to build and fly his own aeroplane, Harry Humphreys is currently studying for his commercial pilot licence and his grandfather, Chris, was also a pilot in the RAF.
This will be the 10th Annual Bray Air Display. The organisers have got an extra special programme lined up for families. From vintage aircraft to supersonic jets, and from smoke-filled displays to precision formation flying, they will be showing the public the very best of what Irish and international aviation has to offer. The Bray Air Display, starts at the earlier time of 2.00pm on Sunday, 19th July, and is expected to attract over 80,000 visitors to the East Coast that day. The good news is that it's all free and no tickets or admission charge applies.
Jets from Aer Lingus, Ryanair and CityJet will also be taking to the skies above Bray that day and spectators are strongly advised to use Dublin Bus, DART and other public transport services, as traffic restrictions will be in place.
