Re: 24hr PPR in EIKN

I was going to post a cryptic response to the PPRN issue but on reading Robert Watts article on 'Far-reaching reforms alter public service landscape' in to days Irish Times it all now makes sense. Here is what he said: The Government's reform programme is based around five central themes: placing cu...

AOPA Irl AGM

Any reports on how the AOPA Irl AGM went on Saturday evening? Could not make it myself as it's a 5 hour round trip drive.

Re: Oil for Rotax 912 engines

I have been informed by Shell that Aerosport 4 is a repackaged/Badged 'Advance VSX 4T' specifically for the aviation market. In other words its the same oil in a new container. Their reasoning for the marketing change was that Pilots did not like putting motorbike oil into their areo engines.

Pilot Kilrush does not require 3 hours notice. If you check the wording Customs & Excise require 3 hours notice from any PIC leaving the state from any airfield (non Customs airfield) in Ireland. It has been put on the Kilrush web site for simplicity and to draw pilots attention to it. The notic...

Tom - when the nerves go away hang up your flying helmet and take up golf. My ppl hours are now in the thousands and I still have a slight nervous reaction to any flight. Its the nerves that keep you focused. Good luck and keep flying

There is a very interesting article in this months Pilot magazine in the AOPA page. AOPA UK and a number of other organisations are starting to fight EASA on the Part-M maintenance saying its way over the top for recreational aircraft. Your Tecnam bolt comes into this category

Well said Hum & cubpilot

A bit of reverse thinking there. Cut the paperwork, sack the white coats in their ivorytowers which will give us more money in our pockets so that we can fly more. Sure works for me and we will probably cut the accident rate as well.

I've held a FAA license for the past 23 years and hopefully I have flown responsibly with due regard to both people in the air and on the ground. I don't understand why people keep looking at the license or the registration. All pilots are trained to an ICAO standard, how they view that license or a...

ILB I've just seen an aircraft changed from the 'G' reg to the 'N' reg because the standard of maintenance was so bad it was dangerous. The owner spared no expense to ensure his aircraft was up to scatch. I suspect that aircraft owners are going to get quite a jolt in their pants (or should I say wa...
