Re: PPL Issue?

Hi Mark

With regards to how long it takes between applying and taking the test, it varies on examiner ability but generally you won't take more than 2 or 3 weeks....unfortunately you have to wait to receive your licence to exercise the priveleges of a ppl.

Re: NEW iPhone app - VFR Flight Guide

Hi Batman, comparitively speaking it's pricey for an app but given that its a very specialist app (Irish pilots, maybe a handful visitors) there's a limited market for EI-KEV. The price has to reflect his development costs....if had a market of hundreds of thousands I'm sure it would have a lower p...
