Re: AAIU Reports

Now this is the thing. There is no ban whatsoever and that is what they would tell you. When we chase them up on our member's one they just say they're working on it or, we're nearly there but nothing ever happens. As these aircraft are by definition Microlights, they come under the NMAI but the IAA...

Re: AAIU Reports

I think we are all missing Lynn's point. Despite over 20 years of trying to engage with the IAA in order to establish safe, professional clubs and schools, the IAA, for reasons known only to themselves, decided to erect any obsticle possible to prevent this from happening. More recently, they have d...

So you want to be an airline pilot

So you want to be an airline pilot? Here is a "Home Study Simulator Course" designed for those who hunger for the "romance" and "adventure" of airline flying. 1. Stay out of bed all night. 2.

Re: Light aircraft down near Birr

Very tragic and very very sad. I didn't know them but the aircraft was a frequent visitor to Clonbullogue and I've never seen anyone exit it without huge smiles and happiness. From everyone at the NMAI, our sincerest condolences. Our thought and prayers are with the families and everyone at Ormond F...

NMAI had a series of meetings with the IAA over a period of about 18 months the culmination of which was a Single Seat Deregulation (SSDR) system similar to that of the UK and Germany. During these meetings the IAA decided to delega...
