Re: Aviators Guide to Ireland

@pilot1087
This is the natural order of things.
Aviator is obviously outselling the other one and the latter would like a slice of the takings.
I see definite infringement here. Both have photos of green fields.
What was that Brendan said to Begrudgers...

Hi Stovepipe,
My CPL back in God's time was in a 172 as well but Single engine CPL Flight tests must be in a "complex" aircraft these days. New(ish) rules.

Hi Hibby,
If your CAA PPL was issued under JAR then simply approach any Irish Examiner and he will revalidate/renew you as appropriate.

Hi 121, IMHO an IR is only of value if it is going to be used regularly. To do that one needs access to an IR equipped aircraft and a place to go. Within Ireland I don't think it would be a lot if value as the journeys are too short and the destinations limited. Fine if you've a lot of overseas trav...

Bladecrack,

I was merely commenting on the fact that there is no requirement to notify Special Branch when travelling from France to the UK unlike from here.
Thanks for the other info though. I'll stop complaining about our authorities forthwith.

Bluebeard,
The pilot from France is luckier than us. He has no requirement for Special Branch.

Vanman,

NFC (FTO) in Weston also has an RTF as do Flightwise and Skytrace.
More than you might expect really. I think it's because the RTF can advertise and give Intro flights whereas "Clubs" (PPL Instructor) cannot.

Yo Yo,
Reimbursement of outlays incurred by the Instructor in the course of his duties of instruction. This would include motoring costs refunded via a flat rate kilometric allowance for travel at Civil Service rates. Essentially monies paid which could not be considered as a wage. E. & O.E.

Highflyer1000.
If the instructor is to be paid then the RTF needs Aerial works aircraft and CPL instructors. Most Clubs are using PPL instructors and therefore can only reimburse expenses to them. If PPL's take payment then they're breaking the rules.

Completely agree Bladecrack. Only last week the EGAB authorities reported a chap to Customs who had uplifted duty free without a flight plan in the system. As regards submitting GAR forms I personally have met a pilot who got the maximum £1000 and 3 months for landing at Tatenhill without submitting...
