Re: IAA Aviation Policy Conference.

It was more of a WAFFLERS PARADISE than a conference! Advertising was included, and so was the buddy-buddy regime. But, it was certainly NO conference to many in attendance. One stated he had “attended an IFA meeting with far more magnetism” then he left to go for a drink instead of that “I am me at...

Re: IAA Aviation Policy Conference.

Firstly, let me apologize for not updating everyone on this forum lately. Those that know my situation understand where i unfortunately stand at present. As for the Conference on Irish Aviation Policy, GA need not exist, unless it can produce elaborate funds! http://www.iaa.ie/index.jsp?p=106&n=520&...

Re: VFR at Night

Your last two posts are somewhat bizzare. ATC is not the "competent authority" as defined in the regulation. They were delegated the competent authority in 1993 and under the present EASA Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC’s) they still are. http://www.easa.europa.eu/rulemaking/faq/acceptable-mean...

Re: VFR at Night

Who do you think is more competent to ensure that the SVFR flight is complying with the regulations? Do you seriously believe that Shannon Control seeks permission from the IAA every time an SVFR is required? If they decided to discontinue SVFR, there would be a lot more than me creating a rumpus! I...

Re: VFR at Night

Yes! Nothing has changed.

Do you not consider a Senior ATC Officer or Supervisor as a COMPETENT authority?

SVFR MUST remain as its a safety issue.

Re: VFR at Night

The full regulation takes effect in 2 Months.

Using your link, read on down way below your article 11.
Look for "SERA.5010 Special VFR in control zones", that is part of the SAME regulation!

Re: VFR at Night

SVFR will remain in operation for the following 5 Years or until EASA decides otherwise, whichever is the sooner, but only within CTZ, with the exception of "Special Category" flights. AOPA has now received a response from IAA regarding the NVFR issue. The topic of VFR at night in Irish airspace wil...

Re: VFR at Night

So how do I get this SVFR clearance to fly at night in Class G airspace? the UK exemption is applicable to all airspace . It's simply not the case that operators in Irish airspace must simply get a SVFR clearance, and disappear off into the night where ever you see fit. SVFR clearances are offered ...

Re: VFR at Night

Hi all, I have been asked by numerous members to verify the present AOPA views on this and to clarify a few issues concerning it. 1..As this is an EU Regulation and not a Directive, it is at the discretion of each member state, whether to implement it or not, and if so, how and when. 2..The CORRECTE...

Those who have a strong interest in this may be given the opportunity to attend the meeting, and voice their concerns. It is preferable however, t...

Re: Who was before the IAA ?

I may be wrong in my estimate but in the first 5 Months of 1928 it was the "Office of the Board of Travel" who governed all transport.
Amelia Earhardt was among one of those who contacted them this year.

Re: Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association Ireland (AOPA Ireland

AOPA-Ireland, represents the interests of all GA related issues and movements within Ireland, without discrimination to anyone. Our level of representation does not remain within Ireland though, it is taken as high as ICAO, Eurocontrol, AOPA-Europe, IAOPA and, EASA, whom we are in present deadlock w...
