Re: No more AOPA Ireland?

I can only imagine that most of the membership feel they have paid the annual fees and that they can just sit back and wait for for the good times to roll. Unfortunately life's not like that and any gains made have to be worked at. Hugo. Spot on Hugo, although i would not say "Most" of them. There ...

Re: No more AOPA Ireland?

just talk? William Is that not how progress is made and agreements are reached? Quite clearly, you sound like the others who never attended any meetings, otherwise, like the rest of us you would know differently. There is a LOT of work that goes on which is not visible to non participants. You admi...

Re: Building your own grass strip??

Generally, my neighbours would only know i am home again when i come into their kitchen for a coffee. I normally would only perform a powered landing in conditions of high or indirect winds, this would be perhaps 2 out of every 7 landings, but i must emphasize that i have it well practiced and all d...

Re: Cat Transport

Kitty Cat Transport.... Even has a certain ring to it ... :D I like my peaceful tranquility when airborne, So if he purrs louder than my motor, he could be swimming his finals. :D Only joking, of course! I am an animal lover, and before there are any smart answers, i mean the 4 legged ones! :oops:

Re: Cat Transport

Hi Ted,
I MAY be in a position to help you out at the end of the month but unsure as of yet.
If so, you will need to handle the cargo charges at the other end, will PM you in coming week.

Re: Galway Airport

Ah! beautiful Galway! Where the Airfield was stolen, an aerodrome built, and GA clouded out. "What goes around comes around" Good to see an open door once again in the "City of avoid the transition". I sincerely hope, and pray, that the door shall remain open to the ga sector here, too much bad feel...

Re: General Aviation Safety Council

The IAA suggest the next steps are: 1) Each organisation review the suggested GASCI structure outlined in this document and decide, in principle, if they wish to participate in GASCI. 2) All organisations wishing to participate, including the IAA and AAIU, meet to expand and agree the complete stru...

Re: Inishbofin Clegan

Yes, i did a few t&g s and it was a smooth airflow day so there was no obstructions, no traffic and no control. I enjoyed the approach from different levels both engine on and off, from different elevations too. The scenery in this area is gorgeous and what better than watching that knowing there wa...

Re: Landing Fees

OMG. The best evidence you can supply is from a regional newspaper clipping which provides a small sample of the facts in the usual sensationalized one sided fashion. GOD HELP IRELAND and anybody who relies on you!

Re: Landing Fees

Who are AOPA and what exactly have they achieved? Are you a total recluse? Anyone in the aviators circle will laugh at such a question. Where the hell have you been hiding yourself for the past 50 years? Perhaps you really were born yesterday. Having met Jim once he came across as a Declan Ganley t...

Re: Helicopter forced to make emergency landing

Yes! I have read about the “Liberties” you refer to. Has anyone approached the said photographer? and invited him to “Come aloft” Simple humanitarian gestures like that work wonders you know. Maybe the airfield owners of Ireland should collectively prevent that same Ministers relation from landing o...

Re: Helicopter forced to make emergency landing

“Is this a reflection of Irish Flying Community???” I pray not! For it is the lowest level of comradeship. Some posters seemingly forget they can, and may, be summoned under a Court Order, and be compelled under law, to answer questions and signify their source of information plus, failure of compl...
