Its safe to say that the information on some 'career' sites about how to become a pilot are gravely wrong and lack research.

Anyway long story short there is no minimum hours requirment to join a school...

The places nearest weston would be Trim to the North-west or Kilrush to the South-west.......The latter would be preferable and is a lovely and friendly facility, slightly longer drive possibly but worth it. I dont know if kilrush is taking more base aircraft....i dont have a contact number handy......

I think you can forget weston for basing an aircraft there, even if it is the grass and not hangared. Your talking ???'s (thousands) and im not even sure if they will accept any new aircraft because they're pretty much at capacity for light aircraft....i stand to be corrected on this though.
