Headset problems

Hi Guys Have any of ye had problems with David Clarke headsets? I recently was given a H10.60 by a mate who assured me that while they were a few years old they had less that 5 hours work. This shows as there is not a mark on them, they are like new (even the ear socks). However im having mike probl...

Hi Guys GJOYT took the missus and me for a jolly from Enniskillen to Sligo in G-BUUM a few Sundays back. It’s a fantastic flying machine, fast and roomy, well worth the rental. And you couldn’t beat St Angelo’s, big wide long tarmac runway right in the middle of some of the best scenery in the count...

I always assumed it was 1013.25 but now i'm doing the met paper I'm doubting myself i.e....

Hi lads This is something I have taken an interest in recently. I’m nearing the end of the PPL course and had a mind to buy something Group A for start of 2010. The prices are tempting and same as you I found the specs difficult to get a handle on. However after much analysis and some very good and ...

Hi all I don’t want to get involved in this debate, because I don’t have enough knowledge of AOPA or other representative bodies, but what I can tell you is that you don’t use an RBN1 for registering a limited company.

Aside from ability, the school insists that before solo each student must have the medical and an exam in the rules of the air passed. I have been studying the air law manual and doing the confuser questions wh...
