The first plane to land in Ballyboy was a Piper Cub J5A in 1994, landing on a grass runway cut between two fields on the Cullen family farm. The airfield has since become one of the best recognised in Ireland.

2019 Fly-in and Family Fun Day

The 2019 Ballyboy Fly-in and Family Fun Day in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland took place on Sunday 4 August 2019. Thanks to everyone who attended and helped us to raise funds for DSI.

Under blue skies we had a full day of flying and entertainment. The kids were kept busy with our giant bouncy castles and face painters. And there was something for everyone with our full schedule of flying, with helicopters, our air display and lots of small aircraft activity throughout the day.

Special thanks to our many sponsors, volunteers, suppliers, supporters, Meath Civil Defence, Follow-Me Aircraft Marshallers and our Flight Display Director. Thanks also to our visiting pilots and crews who kept the huge crowd entertained – particularly the Garda helicopter, Air Corps Medevac helicopter, and our aerobatic displays from Rich Goodwin, the Irish Historic Flight Foundation and Eddie Goggins.
