Hi guys,

Its split between Flyer 1 and Buggy B,

EI-ARN is correct, it was a Wren 460. Apparently it had a stall speed of 35kts!!! not bad for a 182.

Hi Flyer1, your local knowledge has put me to shame . Try this one: http://i595.photobucket.com/albums/tt37/socata10/0376883.jpg Apologies as I had to take it from another site and all credit to the photographer. My Chief Pilot told me about this aircraft. He did all his pre CPL hours in it. Two que...

Hi Brian,

No avgas in Cork at the moment (Notam 1543/08 ). Speaking to local sources it may not be available at all after that.

Instructor rating in Ireland

Hi all,

Does anyone know who in Ireland is offering full or part-time Instructor rating training? I have checked the 3 largest schools and none of them do the training anymore.

Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Many thanks,

Mike

IFR, if its only as a back up you could pop across the border and do the IMC rating training. Friend of mine did this and says it was excellant. Didnt sit the test for it though. Lambada, you're right about the time frame 36 and 18 months. But the ATPL exams cannot be split as you suggest. There are...

Hi ya Dont want to knock anyone on here. What I described above was what I had to go through as a modular student in PTC. I changed from a UK PPL to Irish MEP/CPL. 747, I believe also holds a CPL (at least) and can describe his training better. Your best bet in all these situations, to dispel rumour...

Hi fadgest, If the certain training provider here in Ireland is PTC, then you will need 175 hours to start their modular 25 hour CPL course. Be very certain of the above as I got caught for the 20 odd hour difference when I tried to start on my CPL course last September. It took an extra 2 weeks to ...

Hi fadgest,

From my own experience, if doing a CPL in south eastern Ireland you will need 175 hours total time to start a modular course. The IAA will not accept a CPL application unless the 200 hour mark is passed.

Your best bet is to contact the IAA to verify all this.
