A Tribute to Captain Mike Murphy
Season 2, Ep. 11
In this weeks episode, we talk with pilot Neil Murphy about his father, Captain Mike Murphy, who died on May 25th, 2019. In late 2018, his Dad was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour, a glioblastoma. On May 25th 2019, 2 days before Neil's 27th birthday, his Dad had passed away. According to Neil, his Dad is the sole reason he is in an aviation career, and he couldn't have asked for a better role model. For that reason, this won't be any ordinary marathon. He wants this to be the most challenging 42.2km he could endure around London. The current record for a marathon dressed as a 3D aircraft is 5:03:15, and he hopes to beat this.So with your help, he can reach his fundraising target, and some precious funds can go towards a charity that is doing incredible work to help us understand more about this terrible cancer.DONATE HERE: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/NeilLondon2021

Season 2, Ep. 9
Last weekend we were at the ILAS fly-in at their airfield in Wexford - this weekend I flew into Birr for the Annual Birr Breakfast Fly-In, which this year was in aid of the local St.Vincent De Paul. Over 40 aircraft flew in and while the hungry crews sat down to a full Irish Breakfast I spoke to some of the many women in aviation that were at the event from recently soloed students to experienced pilots and instructors.Over €2,000 was raised from visitors on the ground and from the visiting aircraft who attended from all over Ireland, despite the challenging weather conditions. Thisfigure will be added to funds already raised at other events this year to atotal of over €252,000. Plans are now firmly in place that this will be an annual event.
