Anoraks in Limetree

Had a great visit “under the guise of an anorak” to Limetree today for the big flyin. I’d like to say a big thank you to Gary Deegan for his hospitality. There was no shortage of anything and even the weather behaved. I’m sorry I couldn’t stay a bit longer but duty calls and I’m on my way back to wo...

Re: AAIU Reports

Well now boys and girls isn’t this a great spell of weather. Airfields drying out and farmers busy pouring slurry over the countryside. It seems there’s a lot of it around this year by the looks of things ;-) But seriously though I love this time of year when the daylight hours are headed north agai...

Weightshift Training

Hello all I have been dismayed that there appeared to be no training available for weightshift pilots in Ireland other than what is available in Northern Ireland. It now appears however that I was mistaken about this. There is training available in Longford apparently. It is advertised on Donedeal. ...

Re: AAIU Reports

Well excuse me for wanting to play with the “real pilots”. As for meeting me out flying, I will hopefully be flying a flexwing so one of us should be keeping a good lookout. I don’t remember coming on here looking for respect. I did however point out a few fundamental truths and did ask a few awkwar...

Re: AAIU Reports

Someone said;- “Oh my god will this tread ever end think it has been played to death at this stage!” As far as I know this is an open forum. If my interminable ranting and whining irritates you I would respectfully suggest that you stop reading it. Where are the people defending the authority? Their...

Re: AAIU Reports

In no particular order here are a few quotes from this thread;- • Priceless, I'm busting my sides laughing at this..... Can you imagine the faces on the guys in the IAA reading this........, and they read everything on this forum!!! • Last few posts spot on. Think the generous and genuine responses ...

Re: AAIU Reports

There you go, that’s how to do it. Accident report done and dusted in a little over 5 months. That’s the way it should be done and that’s with hundreds of witnesses that could be interviewed. To quote the report;- “The United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) website showed that the aircraft wa...

Re: AAIU Reports

Greetings from “The North Sea” I’ve been offline for a few days while I was getting settled. I’m glad to see you’ve all been busy in my absence. Some lads seem to think that the more they say the more they know. ‘Tis a great pity that it doesn’t work that way or we’d have some real experts on flying...

Re: AAIU Reports

I’m glad Damien showed me that thing over in the UK, I’m beginning to think that I may have been foolish thinking that I would be able to teach myself to fly. I have decided that I will spend the money I have saved on lessons instead of buying a cheap flexwing. I can then get a credit union loan to ...

Re: AAIU Reports

For the love of god lads will ye cool the jets. It’s not like I’m going out next week to kill myself. I have done a lot of research on this and it will be at the very least early Summer before I am in a position to buy a plane. I might even get a few more lessons. Thanks for the offer Jonkil. I’m no...

Re: AAIU Reports

Stovepipe, your concerns for my safety are thankfully unfounded. 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 very slowly at first until I get a bit better at it. I promise I will be very careful and only go out on calm ...

Re: AAIU Reports

Thanks to everyone for your interest. It will take me some time to digest all this but a couple of things spring to mind.   It is comforting to know that there are people here to defend the AAIU and by the same token that there are those who disparage it. This shows that there is a balanced reaction...

AAIU Reports

Hello all, Please cut some slack to a newbie if I'm posting in the wrong place as I'm relatively new to all this. I am a low hours flexwing student from the central plain with an insatiable appetite for all things related to aviation. Sometimes I am a bit nervous about this whole flying thing but I ...
