Re: Mini Max

Thanks for the replies folks. I think I'll go with the SD-1, I particularly like the fact that the main spar and tail plane spars are made for you. What about fitting a BRS; are there many in the country? Any hassle with getting the sign off to fit one? Not that I'll be pushing the plane to limits b...

Mini Max

Hi all, wondering if there are any Mini Maxs out there? If I can't fly I still need to get out of teh house so I was thinking I might take on a project and build one but wonder if anyone's aware of difficulties in registering EI and getting first flights etc signed off? Might I be better going G reg...

Re: bing 54 rebuild kits

Pat, I recently bought a fuel pump for a 582 from the states; I priced it with Skydrive (£145 +postage) so I bought it from the US. It arrived about 10 days after ordering and I had a brand new genuine fuel pump for less than €60 delivered. I find those numbers hard to argue with!

Re: Tibonine Fly-in, Co.Roscommon....CANCELLED

Jonkil, you've just reinforced everything I was trying to get across. Those with an NPPL won't be happy until the system is changed to suit them rather than taking PIC responsibility for flyin or not flying. I really can't understand why these events are cancelled making us all suffer - there are pe...

Re: Tibonine Fly-in, Co.Roscommon....CANCELLED

That's a pity - I was really looking forward to that but it's hardly surprising. Another irishflyin episode with the toys being thrown out of the pram. How long are events like this going to be ruined for those of us who ARE legal. If you took short cuts in your training or aren't legal then that's ...

Ballooning in Trim

I notice there are several balloon launches from Trim this weekend. Does anyone know where the launch site is and if spectators are welcome??

I'd love to go over and watch them lift if anyone's got the info!!

Re: Irish Flyin Website

...so why did the whole site have to be pulled??

And why are people flying in the republic with an NPPL - the IAA are only enforcing clear regulation, nothing's changed??

I get the impression people have been talking short cuts on their training and now it's coming back to bite.....

Re: Changing from PPL(a) to PPL(m)

Batman, as far as I know a microlight rating added to to your PPL is a minimum of 5 hours anyway so it seems you're not too far away??!

You'll not look back - I promise :lol:

Licence Validity

Hi all, licencing question; I have a 3-axis microlight licence with a flex wing rating (terminology correct or not I'm sure you get the drift). My problem is that all my flying in the last year or more has been on flexwings and theoretically my 3 axis 'rating' will expire this June. My understanding...

Re: irish atc on strike

As an aside to the conversation above; is there any indication that the IAA might be advertising any time soon to fill shortages??
