The Sneachta, the Snowflake, is an old plane, but well maintained, kept and upgraded periodically. It is a valuable addition for the naval surveillance, coast protection and other services provided by the Navy. Phased out in 2018 in favour of the SDY-Sciathan 20 Guairdeall Multi-Purpose Amphibian Aircraft.
