Re: Recommended GPS unit

Hi,

Thanks for the replies.

I decided to try the Skydemon app/subscription.
http://www.skydemon.aero

Also bought an inexpensive mount for my iPhone6 on Amazon.

Must say so far Skydemon looks very good.

Just need weather to improve to go play!

Cheers,
Ciaran.

Recommended GPS unit

Hello all, My Garmin GPS III Pilot packed in recently. It was a handy little unit and not too expensive at the time. Looking on Transair.co.uk entry level GPS units seem to start about £500stg. Certainly the Garmin ones. Anyone recommend slightly cheaper devices with Irish maps? Anyone any experienc...

GPS Repair

Hi folks,

Anyone know where I can get a handheld pilot GPS repaired in Dublin?

Its a oldish Garmin GPS III 'Pilot' unit.

It powers up (you see the splashscreen) then just powers down. I suspect there's an internal lithium type battery for map memory etc. which is gone on it.

Thanks,
PPL.

I was reading a review of it in one of the UK flying mags. It sounds great. You can get more info here....

Unfortunately it appears that its only available to buy for US and Canadian customers at the moment. Hopefully it'll make it over here soon.

I think you can obtain them from the IAA. They should also be able to advise you when the next revision is out.

Re: What Age.....?

Hi, Under JAA regulations, you can hold a Student Pilot License (SPL) at 16 years of age. This allows you to solo an aircraft once you've passed a medical and reached that stage in your training. You must be 17 to obtain a Private Pilots License (PPL). You can check out the JAR Flight Crew License (...

I have heard that Aer Rianta are looking into making repairs to get it operational for cetain weight categories of aircraft. I believe they're under pressure from the likes of Aer Arrann who could get Turbo Props and the like in there.

Be nice to be able to bash circuits in EIDW again.
