Things that go bump in the Flight

Season 3, Ep. 5

In this episode, we talk with the founder of Turbli.com. It has been developed and maintained by Ignacio Gallego-Marcos.

Ignacio has been working in the area of turbulence modelling and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for the past seven years. He did his doctoral thesis at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden and currently works in Sweden as a CFD engineer. He has also written several journal and conference papers within the area of fluid mechanics.


Turbli is a tool for the curious traveller, the ones who fear flying, the people trying to concentrate on work through the flight, the parents hoping to walk their babies along the aisle, and many more. According to Ignacio we should listen to the instructions of flight attendants and buckle up when the sign turns on, and we'll have nothing to fear.

Air Corps flight crews work alongside National Ambulance Service Advance Paramedics in a dedicated military helicopter for the rapid transfer of critical patients to the most appropriate hospital in the country. Initially set up in 2012 for a 12- month trial period, the aim was to assess the level and type of dedicated Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) required in Ireland in light of recent closures of regional facilities such as Roscommon Hospital. Since its inception, it has become a vital asset in terms of critical pre-hospital care and has completed over 3500 missions.  We speak with Commandant Oisin McGrath, Officer Commanding 301 Squadron, the (Tactical Helicopter Squadron). Lieutenant Colin Delaney, is currently a copilot on the AW139. Captain Jason Mc Dermott; the officer tasked with being responsible for the helicopter operation in Athlone, Sergeant Philip Byrne, Pat Moran and Tommy Monaghan both Advanced Paramedics from the National Ambulance Service and Sergeant Diarmuid Corcoran Crewman on the AW139.
