Re: Galway Zone

Update: I received the following response from Galway operations to a request to land there this week: Hi Dara, I am sorry to have to tell you that Galway airport is currently closed as it has been purchased by the council. We are awaiting a decision in the next week to ten days on what the short or...

Magazine subscription - how to inform change of address?

Hi, I'm a subscriber to the magazine but have recently changed address.

What's the preferred way to let you know of a change of address?

Also, I can't seem to find any e-mail address anywhere on this website, only phone numbers. Is this intentional?

Re: Ireland's best scenery

Flying into Enniskillen the view of Upper and Lower Lough Erne from the air is something special. A sightseeing flight from Navan to the coast along the Boyne has lots of interesting things to see including the Hill of Slane, Newgrange and Dowth, Boyne bridges (old and new!) and Baltray beach. The l...

Re: Aviators Guide to Ireland

Just placed my order now - waiting impatiently for my copy to arrive... In the meantime I used the "sample" page reproduced in this thread to get PPR and fly in to Cooley on Thursday evening - didn't even know it existed until I saw it here. Excellent information, can't wait to see all the other air...

It was actually lovely flying weather in the East and Midlands on Sunday morning. A few clouds around, but winds were light.

Re: Flying to the UK

Thanks for the help. It's my first cross-border trip, so I'm doing this paperwork for the first time. I filled it out as you suggested and mailed it off to UK customs, PSNI and Irish Revenue. Having done it once, I would say the paperwork should be straightforward enough from now on. The only proble...

Re: Flying to the UK

Can anyone advise me on this question in the GAR form: "If YES has UK VAT been paid?" As the aircraft is not based or registered in the UK, no UK VAT has been paid, so obviously the answer is "NO". But if I answer "NO" will that create a problem? VAT has been paid in the EU so no VAT is due. [Edited...

Re: Never Flown to Weston Before

http://www.westonairport.com/flight.aspx The above link gives details of the procedures for arriving and departing on both 07 and 25. As Weston is in Class C airspace it would seem that a flight plan is required for your trip from the Aran Islands, and also it would seem prudent to file a plan since...

Re: Commercial Aircraft Spare Parts business

42 gas turbine courses in the UK: http://www.emagister.co.uk/gas_turbine_courses-tps251687.htm I suggest for your purposes (career development) you would be better off with a 4-day or 5-day short course, rather than self-study from a multimedia course. Of course that depends on how much you (or your...

Re: Ballyboy BBQ (EIMH)

I just want to say thanks to everyone who organised this. This was my first ever fly-in, and it was certainly a memorable one. It was a fabulous event, really well-attended with lots of planes, lots of food and drink, and fantastic aero displays. Brilliant!

Re: Kilkenny Airfield Fly-in 2010

I flew into Kilkenny two weeks ago and nobody charged me a penny. I called ahead PPR and the person I spoke to met me after I landed, and called a taxi for me to take me into town. I think there is no call for calling anyone tight-arsed. Either there is a landing fee or there isn't, and if there isn...
