Aircraft crash on Blackstairs Mountains

RIP to the two gentlemen involved. http://www.rte.ie/news/2015/0525/703521-plane-crash/ Most will have heard of the incident by now, but some abroad still monitor the site and may have met them but not yet heard the sad news. No reports of emergency radio calls and one would imagine that, assuming c...

Re: CAA PPL (A) & Microlights

Hi buggyB I specifically asked the IAA your last question and they have said that they now believe that agreement has been reached that any hours flown in 3-axis non EASA Annex II aircrafts will be allowed to count towards revalidating an SEP.

Re: CAA PPL (A) & Microlights

There seems to be a different interpretation of the rules between the IAA and CAA, and possibly everyone else. The CAA seem to have taken the line that you need an EASA licence to fly an EASA aircraft. As Mark mentioned the the IAA seem to view things as ...an EASA licence can only be used to fly an...

Re: Galway Airport. Avoid Avoid

Does that mean that the zone and the CTA stubs are also open at the weekends, as they are only active during the published opening hours of the tower?

Re: English Language Proficiency

The standards of our RT licence is not really the issue, you might agree that a native english speaker using conversational english over RT is much more likely to understand and make himself understood than a non-native speaker who can only use rigid RT protocol. Fine until something unexpected happ...

Re: English Language Proficiency

I have confirmed today with the Licencing section of the CAA that their current level 4 issued in March 2008 will now lapse in March 2012. Although all the information documentation on their own website indicates the original lapse date of March 2011, the wording of the extension was issued in an AI...

Re: Plane in Roscommon

There used to be a blue Rallye based there years ago between Roscommon and Knockcroghery, just before the level crossing. I wonder if it is the same person. I haven't seen the particular aircraft I'm talking about for over 20 years so maybe it's a different one but perhaps using the same field (it w...
