Re: Aero Estate

Hi Flying88, I'd say it would be possible but would be a long term project. There are several similar ventures setup as golf clubs around the country and I think that would be the model to follow. They're set up as a golf club or country club with associated mobile homes or houses and other faciliti...

Re: Loss of Medical/License insurance

Hi, I use APPN, https://www.appn.asso.fr/index.php/en/ . Found them very efficient to deal with and most of my colleagues also use them. It's run on a non-profit basis so if there is a surplus at the end of the year you get some money back. I used the IALPA scheme before that but APPN appeared to of...

Re: Shares/club Cork?

Hi Nathan, There are no clubs in the Cork area I'm afraid. There are a few groups but I don't know if they are open to new members. One is the Lee Aero Club that operates a Europa out of Cork. Another is the Hawk Group in Rathcoole but sadly their aircraft was involved in a serious accident last wee...

Re: Good Morning, Hello and a Question

Hi John, The EASA PPL(A) is a lifetime licence so there are no requirements for keeping it current (obviously in order to use it you need a valid medical and rating but the licence itself is for life). What you're keeping current is the rating which is an SEP (LAND). The LAPL licence has a different...

Hi Dan,

No problem, glad I could help. Always great to have more FI's in the system, hopefully we meet at some stage in the future.

Re: Good Morning, Hello and a Question

Hi all, So the AMC/GM have been published for this and I can confirm you can now count hours on 3 Axis microlights towards the revalidation requirements of your EASA SEP rating. I'm not sure if this is intentional or not but you can't do the 1 hour training flight with an instructor on a 3 axis micr...

Re: Good Morning, Hello and a Question

Hi aerocork2000, Still no update, waiting for EASA to publish the AMC and GM to the last update in Oct/Nov last year. In the current crisis I don't expect it to be published any time soon. If you're looking for hours to be counted, talk to Mark Brereton (087 661 7115, info@funflyaerosports.ie) at Fu...

Re: 90 Day Rule for CPL issue?

Thanks for sending that on, interesting piece of text. Part-FCL overrides national legislation so that rule should not really be enforced unless you're being issued with a national CPL.

Hi,

Can you provide more details as I can't find any reference to this rule in any of the regulations?

Thanks,

Re: 90 Day Rule for CPL issue?

Hi,

I've never heard of the 90 day rule for the issue of a licence. How many hours total time have you got and how many hours PIC total have you got?

Re: Good Morning, Hello and a Question

Hi John, That's correct, however it's best to do the test with 3 months of your SEP expiring then it's just a straight LPC. If you let the rating expire, then you may need to go to a school or club to get a course completion certificate specifying whether training is required or not and then do the ...

Re: Good Morning, Hello and a Question

Hi John, The aircrew rule was changed in October by EASA and came into effect on 11th November. However the AMC and GM (which outlines the details of the rules) has not yet been published. The last I heard is that they were suppose to be published last week but I've just checked and they have still ...
