Re: Airspace grab in Donegal.

Denham and Redhill are also examples of busy airfields co existing within controlled airspace (although you do have to make the effort not to infringe). Be interesting to see how the rules would apply for flight plans. Not required in any of the UK FIRs for class C, but required in the Shannon FIR f...

Re: Problems with Google Chrome

Mark, Yep all of that would (IMHO) improve the focus of the magazine. I understand the problem with getting contributions from schools, companies etc, and I don't think that will ever change. As for the Chrome issue, I'm away at the minute, but when back will PM a screenshot of the issue. Happy New ...

Re: Problems with Google Chrome

Hi Willo, Thanks for the reply. I understand all of what you're saying, Ireland has a relatively small GA community, which is fairly hard to motivate, however I feel that in trying to be all things to all people, a lot of the content ends up being of limited interest to the likes of me. There are fl...

More in depth interviews and coverage with the Irish flight schools to include general issues students and instructors are facing in the IAA environment. Roundup of AOC operations, coverage on the awarding of AOCs, comments from AOC holders on the operating environment. Comment from qualified commen...

Problems with Google Chrome

The new website doesn't seem to work with the Google Chrome browser. To be honest, symptomatic of a general issue with quality control at the magazine and one of the reasons why I'll not be renewing my 2 year sub (which was a 3 year sub in total and having supported it from the beginning). If i was ...

Re: January 2010 FII Magazine Photo

Interesting article in that it didn't make any reference to the school involved. You'd have thought it would have, although it's pretty easy to work it out.

Couple of thoughts. 1. If a controller instructed you to fly into terrain/cloud/the sea/another aircraft, would you? 2. UNABLE TO COMPLY, GOING AROUND! The PIC is responsible for the safe conduct of the flight, if a controller gives an instruction that might contravene that, it's the PICs job to dec...

Yes. (Assuming JAA/EASA whatever they are calling it this week). The hours are your own to do with what you want. Some places market hour 'building packages' post PPL, but there is no requirement to do anything with a school. Rather than blatting around the countryside burning up hours, you might co...

You have to be able to prove your 'ties' to the state you are transferring to, which effectively means proving you either live, work or are resident there. If you can do this then you will be able to jump through the hoops required.

Also bear in mind it's not that easy to get into the North Sea either. Lord knows I'm trying!! I meet the minimum hours, have a JAA IR, but haven't made it onto an interview list yet. Bristow are taking people on direct from Bristow Academy, if you can get in there, and indicate you are interested i...

JoeMc, no apology required. It's completely understandable that a heli hovering beside the runway might add an additional stress factor when you are trying to learn. Just for your peace of mind, the helis either operate using the runway, or well away from it. If they decide to use it they will gener...

Enniskillen is a fine facility, except for one big problem. It is full of training eggwisks, they burn up the circuit, have little respect for anything else and the consensus is that they are as ignorant as a pig. If you want to train fixed-wing then go elsewhere. Absolute bollox. The heli school i...
