Catalina Talk

Date: 22nd April

Time: 2pm

Price: FREE

Angelo Cunningham’s first encounter with a Catalina was in 1973 at Dublin Airport when he was an apprentice. It was not until 2014 when Angelo got the opportunity to get up close and personal was the Catalina. He is now the Display Captain flying the Catalina all over Europe. 

At this special talk, Angelo is going to give a brief history of the type of Catalina he flies, what it is actually like to fly and the logistics of getting to the venue and flying the superb display itself, and of course, answer all of those burning questions you might have!
