Looking for a Bell 206 for an hour

Howaya,

Simply Im looking for a bell 206 for an hour. Flight within Dublin. Dont want to go to the usual sources as you have to 'aggle'!

Anybody got a 206 or something like that they would like to do a deal on for an hour, maybe 2.

Where is the exact link to that story? It doesnt amaze me that wcc are taking this attitude. Sure why do we need an airfield at all? Its not like we need pilots for Aer Lingus or Ryanair. They can all go to Jerez and other places. Everyone is going shopping in the north, why dont we just close down ...

Looking for parties interested in group buying an R44

Simply what it says on the tin. Are you interested in getting together with like minded people and buying an R44 astro or raven 1? Based, somewhere in Dublin. Ive just started the plan but do not want to carry it further if nobody is interested.

Ok, Im in Dublin. Take Weston out of the loop, whats left around this area? €650 for an R44 plus fees seems a little on the high side.

Is there any interest in a shared ownership of an R44?

Im still looking around at heli schools. They seem to be a bit thin on the ground. Is it me, or is GA not liked in Ireland? Outside of Weston, where else would be an ideal spot to do heli training?

I thought it was just me thinking that this iaa doc was really rude and abrupt. I had spoken to her many times and always found her to be totally unhelpful. Who can you complain to?

Opinions Wanted - Irish Heli schools

Im doing a bit of research on behalf of someone looking at the standards, fleets, and cost of learning to heli fly in Ireland. What schools are based in Weston? Is there a demand for heli training? What do you think of the current costs? Any personal experiences good or bad would be appreciated.
