Re: VFR at Night

Yes for the UK, I wouldn't hold your breath down south, GJOYT, the phrase "so prescribed by the competent authority" provides the option to prohibit or restrict it. Equally the requirement to be 1000 below cloud (table s5-1) and 2000 above "high terrain" greatly limits your options for uncontrolled ...

Re: Flying on an expired SEP Rating

Hi Mark One of many interesting questions arising from the introduction of the EASA LAPL. From what I understand the LAPL is not a subset of the ICAO compliant EASA PART-FCL -PPL (what a mouthful) but rather is a European wide license encompassing a subset of the Full PPPL privileges. As such it is ...

Re: Taildragger/grass strip course

You might want to also consider the lads at Newcastle EINC.IE as they have recently got a supercub and they operate from a grass strip.

Carrier Pigeon, Your directional homing ability is a little off.

I'd forgotten about Peter's Falke. Definitely worth investigation. Just one point Rudy before starting a niche rating like TMG in Ireland get written clarification from the IAA that they have an independent TMG examiner available. Other niche pilots such as Balloonists and Gyro's have experienced gr...

Re: TMG Licence

Hi Rudy Thats a very strange request. TMG pilots are generally glider pilots who aquire the aditional rating. You need to ask the Dublin Gliding Club or the Ulster Gliding Club. I seem to recall that the Ulster Gliding Club had a H36 Dimona and were offering Motor Gliding training, whether this was ...

Hi Kevin flyoceanaviation look like your typical small american training facility. Ocean City should have good weather which is the key to making progress and getting to PPL test level. The fact that you are going to be 5 minutes away makes your decision a no brainer. At present you can still fly in...
