It's n...

Re: Two die in small plane crash - Kildare 2019-06-13

He played a big role in getting the Aer Lingus Iolar back to flying condition and keeping the Irish Historic Flight Chipmunks & Stearman in the air. I had the pleasure of flying with him on several occasions in the Chipmunk. Identifying the cau...

Re: looking for Shares/ private rental

Hi flyer100,

If you're interested in flying a 2-seater, I hear FunFly Aerosports at Limetree are getting a Group A Savannah S shortly that may be available to fly. Contact details are at https://funflyaerosports.ie/ . It's not as fast as a Cessna 172 but it's way more fun to fly :)

Regards,
Mark

Re: looking for Shares/ private rental

Hi PaulW,

It depends what type of aircraft you're looking for but generally I find word of mouth and Facebook are the two most popular ways of finding an aircraft share.

Regards,
Mark

Re: ATPL take 2

Hi viz,

Thanks for the confirmation, useful to know. I did all my training at NFC but that was 10+ years ago so can't really comment on any recent experience.

Mark
