Re: PPL Historical Hours

Hi Vinnieb1988, If they were done in an approved school / club for the PPL yes they will count however you'll need to try and get them into your logbook. There should also be a training record of some description from your previous hours. If you can get hold of that as well that will help with havin...

Re: Advice on flying clubs in the south

Hi Ralph, Welcome to the forum. From that list, the only option is Waterford Aero Club (http://waterfordaeroclub.com/ ). AFTA are a great school in Cork but their main aim is commercial flight training so there would be little opportunity to rent there. Kilkenny Aerodrome is mainly used for Parachut...

Re: Private pilots with IFR rating Ireland

Hi Fenian, Now this obviously excludes commercial and ATPL pilots, this is simply leisure pilots Not necessarily as ATPL pilots will have Type Ratings with the embedded instrument privileges limited to multi pilot operations only on that aircraft type. They would not be able to fly IFR on a single e...

Re: New Airport/Airfield for Louth?

Hi Fenian, Looks like the origin of that article goes back to 1995, it was just republished in 2015 on the Indo website. I've looked up the companies mentioned in the article and they're all dissolved now. I can't see there being any economic benefit to having an airport there. We're struggling to k...

Re: New Airport/Airfield for Louth?

Hi Fenian,

First I've heard of it, where did you hear that? Willie Flood's guide already lists four airfields in Co. Louth but nothing on the scale of a regional airport.

Re: Flexwing microlight Training

I mean, whatever the organisations' name is. It's probably a little too complicated complicated to try and get IAA approval for an organisation overseas. This has been the big problem with trying to grow the flexwing pilot population in Ireland. It's just too small at the moment to be self sustainin...

Re: Flexwing microlight Training

Hi Windycar, If you do the PPL(M) (3 Axis) here, you would not be able to add a flexwing qualification to it overseas. The only option you may have is to approach the IAA and ask them if they would accept the training of xx organisation to add a flexwing qualification. I'm not sure if there's a prec...

Re: Flexwing microlight Training

Hi Windycar,

Unfortunately there is no flexwing training available in Ireland at the moment. Your only option is to go overseas and fly under the provisions of IAA Aeronautical Notice P21.

Re: Shares sought

Hi Kieran, Welcome to the forum. I fly at Limetree Airfield, it might be a bit of a commute from Dublin, it takes just under an hour for me, but it's well worth the trip. There's a club there that fly two ICP Savannah's which are great fun to fly. If you're not interested in flying in the club, talk...

Re: Class 1 Medical - Renewal (Health Q's)

Hi Rob, I can't help you with a specific answer but all of the medical rules are laid out in Part-MED. If you take a look at Annex IV, of this document: https://www.easa.europa.eu/sites/default/files/dfu/Easy_Access_Rules_for_Aircrew.pdf , it contains all of the rules around issuing medicals.
