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.

Re: 90 Day Rule for CPL issue?

Hi,

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

Thanks,
Mark

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?

Regards,
Mark

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 ...

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...
