Cheers Cosmic, exactly what I thought it was like. I started my PPL with them in 98 and they were a mess then too so I decided to go to the states and finish it off and I was treated alot better over there. It used to drive me mad when I would take a day off work and find out my name was rubbed off ...

Has anybody recently done the MEP/IR with NFC and what were they like? Did you complete the training in a reasonable amount of time?

Hi NS,

Thanks for the Tip off. I really thought that pace had a good chance for being a great flight school. I had a great time out there even though I was there when 9/11 occureed I was grounded for nearly 4 weeks!

Take it easy and thanks,

Not sure if the training is in that order though. I was told you now do the JAA MEP/MEIR before the CPL and you do the MCC with PARC, plus PTC send you to Florida for the PPL. They are also getting a sim to do a portion of the MEP/MEIR on.

Hi Wanderlai, Yeah I'd recommend the Italian ones too as I noticed that a few questions came up from it. You'll also see these repeated in the Bristol database. For the General Nav exam lots of questions came up that required the use of the whiz wheel. I bought an Oxford CD-ROM on the CRP-5(From Tra...

I ended up using the Bristol database in conjunction with the Italian questions and I was fortunate to get the seven exams in my first sitting. I firmly believe the secret to passing the exams is in practising these sample questions. For anybody thats interested you can purchase the Italian ATPL que...

For the past two years on Chrstmas day I've seen a Cessna flying around the Santry area of Dublin. I asked a Dublin controller what the deal was and he said file your plan and give Shannon a call to enter the zone. No big deal he said. Also you need to have a Mode C transponder and watch out for the...
