Do a class 1 medical before you spend a cent on commercial training.

Re: AAIU Reports

Ah well we'll probably be safe enough for a while as you will only be flying up to 50ft, just make sure you don't go out on a windy day, you might go to 100ft and wet your pants. So what's your real story? Why so pissed at the IAA? Or is it all authority you have a problem with, did you get beat up ...

Re: AAIU Reports

Would you ever give it a rest, you lost all respect when you started talking sh1te about flying around a field teaching yourself, get a life. There is something to deal with jokers like you, it's called Microsoft Flight Simulator, go buy it. This forum is for real pilots, who get real training, have...

Re: AAIU Reports

Hey lads, this entire thread is for sure a piss take. Who in their right mind would even consider trying to teach themselves how to fly???? I love the part where they say; 'The field I’m going to use is huge big and I will be able to fly very low so as to keep out of trouble. I also intend flying ve...

Re: Worth getting a loan for PPL?

Hi MikeyP I would'nt advise getting a loan for a PPL. You'd be better to save up a few quid and do a completion in the US. If you're doing 2-3 lessons a month you must be spending the best part of €500 a month. Personally I would stop taking lessons here and the money you'd save up over a few months...

Re: CAA PPL (A) & Microlights

Hi buggyB I specifically asked the IAA your last question and they have said that they now believe that agreement has been reached that any hours flown in 3-axis non EASA Annex II aircrafts will be allowed to count towards revalidating an SEP. They believe it will be all hours and not a percentage. ...

Re: CAA PPL (A) & Microlights

Hi Guys, Thanks a mill for the replys. Following on from your post mark I posed the question to the IAA of what would be best for me to do. The advice they gave me was to convert my CAA PPL A to an IAA PPL A as they now believe that anyone holding a IAA PPL A with a microlight rating will be allowed...
