Transit fee is still there! They stung me 2 weeks ago and I was at FL060 trying to dodge the place. Their zone is up to 5000 feet. I flew higher the week after and they didn't get me!

I'd love to come but I think its a bit tight for the cherokee. I'll be there if I can beg, borrow or steal a C172-S from Cork. (the club usually don't allow their aircraft into private strips)
