Re: Aviation Survey

A big thank you to everyone who filled out the survey! Haha no one I know of, It's just for a college project and I have to put together a business plan. The survey was for the market research end of it and the scenic flight question was to gauge if folks were just interested in a spin rather than a...

Re: Brian Douglas RIP

I knew Brian from brief chats we had together in the hangar at Trevet, one of those guys where you felt instantly at ease in his presence, a true gent.

Sorry to hear the news and condolences to his family.

Brilliant idea lads.

Have to say Newcastle are the most forward thinking airfield I've come across and this is another example of that.

Re: Model Aircraft over Croke Park Mayo V Kerry

Straight from the 830g foamie manual..."always avoid flying near houses, trees, wires and buildings. You should also be careful to avoid flying in areas where there are many people". Companies are always going to use that to cover their asses. Ever see the label on a hot coffee that says 'caution h...

Re: Model Aircraft over Croke Park Mayo V Kerry

Have to agree, see it for what it is... 830g of gliding foam apparently breaking no known regulations. 'Aviation experts'... claimed that 830g of gliding foam could seriously injure or even KILL someone :shock: Now IF it was a larger, heavier model and IF it had a big ass i/c engine and IF it was go...

Re: Model Aircraft over Croke Park Mayo V Kerry

When I first read about this I thought it was kinda dangerous, I had visions of a large and heavy, metal construction, i/c engine rocket of a model aircraft skimming the heads of fans and players... Only when looking at the details and not buying into all the red rag, silly season new stories I coul...

Re: Model Aircraft over Croke Park Mayo V Kerry

I posted about this on another forum earlier and I really don't think there was much wrong with it when you go into the details. This is from the AIC; ENR 5.5.4. Model Aircraft Flying ENR 5.5.4.1 Small aircraft which weigh more than 1.5kg, without fuel, shall not be flown within 5km of an aerodrome ...

Re: Bristol atpl books

Hi Aidan,

I have a full set of Bristol ATPL books here in excellent condition. I also have the Jeppeson Student Route Manual and a ton of class notes I'll throw in.

I'm in Dublin but can deliver or meet halfway.

Re: Class 1 medical

Hi Neil, Yeah you're spot on, it is up to them, I'm counting myself lucky on that one! I think the whole system is madness and way too expensive in Europe. I think a lot can be learned from the FAA system in general. Found a bit of info on the above if anyone's interested; http://www.caa.co.uk/defau...
