Re: Euro American school of Aviation Florida

Good old Ormond Beach (now known as EASA). They have probably thee most checkered history off any flying school on the internet. Many many disatified as well as satisfied customers. I have flown there and as a School they are not the best by a long shot,you need to be lucky and get a good instructor...

Re: English Language Proficiency

The only upside is they probably wont want more than a hundred euro off you for the pleasure :shoc...

Re: Support Erinagh Airfield

As a fully paid up member of AOPA USA i feel no inclination to join AOPA Ireland even if it is free or otherwise. I would love to support an irish aopa but nothing i have seen or heard instills the slightest bit of confidence. In particular, the contributions here by Jim+kitty aopa leave me highly s...

Re: Support Erinagh Airfield

Apparently Aopa ireland is aware of it and on the case. Their effectiveness is about to be put the test-a first major test. I guess we shall see............................ It is indeed an amazing day to see Tipp CC go all the way to the high court, and a very dangerous precendent IF they win as onl...

Re: Support Erinagh Airfield

I hope Aopa ireland are all over this. Now it is time to see what they are made of. If this was the states Aopa USA would have a finely tuned,highly effective response aimed at the decision makers and PR aimed at the local press- I hope the same happens here.

Re: Air Nav Pro Iphone

Interesting! at 30 quid its one hell of an expensive app but also one really cheap backup GPS. What the default Irish maps like or do you need to pay extra for the ICAO ones to really use it?

And overall is it any good - worth it or not??

Thanks

Re: Beware of Volcanic Ash

That made my day! To think that when most of europe was grounded there was a father and son from Ireland happily flying and right beside the frozen yoghurt volcano too!

Great to see, great trip, great plane, seriously envious .

Re: Fasttrack PPL Completion

Hey bob, Florida is the obvious choice, but you do have factor in the plane tickets,accomadation,TSA fees , US M1 visa fees and travel to and from the embassy etc etc so make sure you factor all those into your TOTAL costs. Florida is fun but you can get periods of weather that isnt suitable for fly...

Re: Contrasts CAA-IAA

Seems like a good idea. Logically there shouldnt be any reason why training couldnt take place from an unlicenced airfield. Common sense would dictate that as long as the aircraft was suited to the runway and its environment, and a qualified instructor was conducting the training then everything wou...
