Re: Galway Airport Sold

A report in, I believe last Friday's Indo stated " The council was pleased to purchase a 'brownfield' site ready for devolopment so close to the City centre" does't sound too promising. Hopefully just speculation on behalf of the reporter.

Re: Favorite Aircraft

For me it's a tie between the Tiger Moth and the Spitfire. With two memorable flights in Tigers, I'm still hopeful of a Spit flight one day. Probably have to win big on the lottery first.

Re: No more AOPA Ireland?

Well said Kitty. Not being a pilot myself I joined as an associatted member because I believed only a large membership would have any impact on aviation policy in Ireland. But that membership has to work as one group and not sit back and expect those apparently at the "top" to do all the running, fe...

Re: Can Irish Aviation Community help me in my search?

Hi Patrick, When the guy came to my home with our aerial I just looked at the photo, liked what I seen and bought it. I didn't ask any questions, but the impression I got was that it was a private venture. I can only imagine that once they got all the sales they could in a particular area the would ...

Re: Can Irish Aviation Community help me in my search?

Hi Patrick, I'm a near neighbour of yours from outside Milford. We have a copy of an aerial photo taken on the 21 Aug 2008 of my wifes home one mile from Carrigart, so more than likely the same aircraft that took your photo. Then on the 16 Sept 2010 an aerial was taken of of our own home but sadly n...

Re: Building your own grass strip??

You only need to apply for planning permision if you are making permanent structural changes to the field ie-: constructing a hard base or hard surface runway (obviously not necessary in your case) or if you put up a hangar for the sole use of aircraft only. But assuming the field in question is par...

Re: CAA PPL (A) & Microlights

Hi Mark, No apology necessary, slightly crossed wires. I fully endorse what you say about all of us showing support for Irish General Aviation through our different groups. Perhaps some work is on going in the background to do just that. It's very badly needed. To unknowlagable me looking on from th...
