Re: Carrickmore Charity Fly-in/BBQ 19th-20th May 2012

Re: RWY Length in Cmore - The AG was correct at time of print, but it has since been extended to 505m apparaently. Seems to be ok for most items of GA traffic, a short hard RWY being alot more useful than a soft bumpy field! :D

Re: PPL in ireland or USA?

Getting PPL is no big deal despite what you might be led to believe. Paying for it is the biggest problem. You can wear the green jersey if you want, and try any number of schools/clubs here for quotes/real world times but I've seen very few places capable of turning out a good on target 45hr PPL. A...

Re: Kinnitty Castle Deal

Think Kinnitty is a bank run operation. The strip was okay'd for us for publication with the previous manager Kate Draper who is not the manager anymore. The field is fine, I walked it a few weeks back. There are obstacles both ends, and I would as always recommend walking anywhere new first. If you...

Re: Inishbofin Clegan

Affirm - they f'ed up the RWY markings. It can be windy as hell down there, well at least it was the day we called in. The landowner could in theory give you permission to land. The landowner may well own a "house hotel and marine spa" on the island..... Wont say anymore

Re: Landing Fees

@ Jim, If my flight guide has omitted airfields, or indeed airfields that charge a landing fee which I find hard to believe, then it would be due to the fact that the owners did not wish to have their details published. There were over 40 places I did not include. I know where they are and use them ...

Re: Cessna Rigging Expert/Split Costs Visit

Nice, I'm always nice :lol: If we leave Permit aircraft aside, I'm an ILAS/LAA member etc etc. Certified aircraft being maintained in accordance with an FAA schedule, cannot have their flight controls undone/adjusted/rigged by just anyone with a book on their knee. All maintenance, preventative main...

Cessna Rigging Expert/Split Costs Visit

Hi, Just looking to see if any Cessna owners/groups/clubs would be interested in getting the top Cessna rigger from America over to do a few planes to make the visit worth while. There are no Cessna Pilots Assoc (CPA) trained riggers over here, and to be honest you are only paying for an Irish mecha...

Re: Weston

I would have thought liquidation is a process specific to the indebted corporate entity, and that maximizing the value of the underlying asset (i.e the airport) would be best achieved by the continuance of it's underlying business. Weston seems much busier than say a year ago, indeed it surprises me...
