Re: Building your own grass strip??

Yes Kitty I could see no way that your local council or an board Pleanala could ever infer that there is a material change in use from agriculture to aviation on your farm. A dozen times a year is absolutely minimal and it would be sheer lunacy if this was now classed as a "development" under the ac...

Have a look at the Corby starlet (Australian design), single seat wooden aircraft powered by either aero vee or Jabiru engines. Aircraft spruce sell the plans and the wood you will need to build it, they even supply the cowling for the jabiru engine too. See Laa mag Feb 2009 for a great write up of ...

What about a Jodel, a D.120 or the like will be cheaper to buy than a luscombe and will outperform it on cruise speed and duration but it will climb about the same as a good luscombe. The only downside is you need to have a bit of taildragger experience as jodels bite and are quite twitchy on the gr...

No comparison to a Bulldog. This thing is a flying Ferrari.. Why would you need so many celtic tigers to buy one of these ? At about 170,000 euros its less than the price of many cars parked in a Stephens Green car park on a Friday night. Bargain for the performance. I disagree with you there 900Ex...

Hi Gerry, It depends on the size of the engine, Rotax 912 or 912s, 80 or 100hp. You could get cheap hangarage if you kept the wings folded on the eurofox, You're Insurance would be cheaper if you got the tri-gear version and you can run the plane on mogas. You're looking at 15-20 euros per hour for ...
