Re: skywatch civil air patrol

I always thought this would be a good idea in Ireland, especially if combined with a charity air ambulance service. I don't know how many times I've burned holes in the sky solo when i could have collected a cancer patient from the west of Ireland for treatment in Dublin or whatever. They have mount...

GA is operating per normal. I flew into the Dublin CTA today, did

Does closed mean 'dont go through' or there will be no 'service' provided. if i did go through could the IAA take action? after all if the controllers were 'absent' who could ...

Re: Another unhappy GA customer at Galway Airport

€224 for three and a half days parking for a two seater weighing 655kgs I don't understand how he could park his plane for 3.5 days and not know beforehand how much it was going to cost. That's like parking your car at Dublin airport in the short term lot then coming back after 3 days and being sur...

I see nothing unusual about the weather on the 10 May. It was
a hazy weak warm front lingering over Ireland, which caused
a lot of haze:

The FAR's and JAR's (don't know about other jurisdictions) covering crew rest is only for commercial operations. So, yes, he
can legally fly that long if it's not a commercial flight.

Re: Interesting youtube video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BmsRmfFYTA Very high nose attitude, stretching the glide. Very hard to tell from that video, but it does look like the RAT is deployed. Can anyone else tell? Here's a pic of where the RAT is on the 777: http://www.wahoodivingcenter.com/imgUpload/reply89081_RAT2.jpg
