DIT MBA Alumni Event at Baldonnel Aerodrome
24 November 2017
DIT MBA graduate Comdt Jay O'Reilly welcomed an exclusive group of DIT MBA Alumni to enjoy an afternoon of discovery at Baldonnel Aerodrome on Wednesday 22nd November.
The event began with a 'behind the scenes' tour of the base from Comdt Jay O'Reilly. The tour was followed by a ‘knowledge exchange’ at the Officer's Mess from DIT MBA faculty and Air Corps personnel, and provided attendees the opportunity to exchange ideas and catch up with the DIT MBA community.
The Air Corps is the air component of the Defence Forces of Ireland. Through a fleet of fixed and rotary wing aircraft, it provides military support to the Army and Naval Service, together with non-military air services such as Garda air support, air ambulance, fisheries protection and the Ministerial Air Transport Service. The primary airbase is Casement Aerodrome located at Baldonnel, County Dublin.
A big thank you to Comdt Jay O'Reilly and the rest of the team at the Air Corps for the warm welcome and insight into the world of the Defence Forces.
