Re: 8.33kHz Radios

Hi David, As I understand it, it will only be for a percentage cost of the radio itself regardless or whether it's self installed or not. There will be no refund for the cost of installation so it's actually better for self builders. I believe the only restriction will be that it needs to be an upgr...

Re: 8.33kHz Radios

Hi OnTheNumbers, We went for the f.u.n.k.e. ATR833 OLED in the end. I have used one before and I like them. There's a refund application similar to the UK being completed at the moment that should release some EU funding for EI- aircraft to help offset some of the cost of upgrade. I'll post further ...

Re: Brexit

Hi Pilot,

I'll stick on my long list of NMAI Things to Do! In fact, I think the best sector of GA to look at this problem is Business Aviation. I think they will be impacted the most, especially if the notification periods went to 24 hours.

Re: CPL MEP & MEIR - Where to train?

Hi martins,

One of my former PPL students went to Diamond Flight Academy last year and he was very happy with them. He did the MCC at Simtech around October and got a job in Ryanair in December. He starts his TR next week.

Re: North-South 400kV Interconnector

Hi Michael, The IAA don't produce many publications so you know when they do they must take the topic seriously. Back in April 2013 the IAA published a document on wire strikes - https://www.iaa.ie/docs/default-source/publications/safety-leaflets/wire-strikes---the-hazard-to-aviation.pdf?sfvrsn=2 . ...

IAA Plan to Lower the Base of Controlled Airspace!

Hi all, Many of you may have been aware of the ongoing consultation to raise the Transition Altitude (TA) from 5,000ft to 18,000ft. Details are at https://www.iaa.ie/general-aviation/consultations.

Re: How much flying have you done?

Hi Mark H, I've managed a bit of GA flying in the last few weeks but December was the first month in 4 years I didn't fly a light aircraft and it was because I didn't try! The weather is still pretty poor but at least with the days getting longer there are some more opportunities to get flying. On a...
