Re: Anyone got a Narco MK12-D TSO to sell?

Try Brian Cook at Bournemouth Avionics, he has plenty of this kind of stuff on his shelves.

Re: health and safety - a horrific article

the paper shufflers are winning It was a very confusing event and I personally don't believe that the inquest can cover every detail of what went on that day. The reports we are receiving through the media now are not a complete picture and therefore each time you read of someone being forbidden to...

Re: Waterford Fly-In

That weather decision was a real shame.

I had a nice flight to Waterford from Biggin Hill, VFR all the way and a couple of Brian's burgers upon arrival.

Granted the IMC rating removes condition of having to stay in sight of the surface at all times On a UK licence......but while operating/flying in the UK. To use the IMC rating to absolve a UK ppl from that restriction while flying in Ireland doesnt wash as Ireland along with all the other JAA/Easa...

Having said that even if the said pilots have a IMC rating on their Uk licence they can't use it here at all Not entirely true. A UK PPL holder can't fly VFR "on top" in Ireland, as UK licences carry the restriction of "in sight of the surface". This restriction is removed on an IMC holder's licenc...

As with any airstrip, no matter how friendly, ppr is just good manners tho, and also to get the most recent airfield information.
I couldn't agree more, hence my attempt to get details.

Please please, issue a MAYDAY. I've read several accident reports where it's been determined that the occupants survived the initial impact, exited the aircraft and died of their injuries, awaiting a rescue that never came. I don't want to take that chance if I find myself in a forced landing situa...

One could execute a perfect forced landing to the point of touching down, then end up in an inverted fireball after the nosewheel has gone down the rabbit hole you couldn't see from 2,000 feet when picking the field. I'll call MAYDAY and cancel it from the ground, once the aircraft isn't on fire, I'...

Mark,

I'm a UK based PPL (Biggin/Headcorn) and a member of Waterford Aero Club, where I do some occasional flying. Also a FII subscriber. Possibly the kind of person your article is aimed at.

If you send it to me, I'd be pleased to review it.


Regards,

Roger

I do wonder about this rule. What's the escape clause if your runway becomes unavailable during the SVFR flight in the CTR?

I've done some night flying at Waterford and it made me think. Yes, I suppose I'd have to go to Cork, but how does that work?
