Re: PPL Books + Medical Questions

Hi Lamprocles Fair play for taking the plunge with the PPL, you won't regret it :) The Trevor Thom books are fairly standard for PPL flight training (Book 1) and theory (the rest, although you probably won't want Instrument Flying for now). In terms of the Air Law, it's been a good while since I did...

I was considering either the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System or CH Flight Sim Yoke I've seen plenty of reviews about the Saitek "phantom keys" problem on the web,...

Re: Mark Dwyer- Type Rating

Congratulations Mark, well deserved. Best of luck with the base and line training.

NFC have a Duchess @ about 480 an hour quote] :shock: :shock: That's about the price the last time I checked, like I said you'd want to double check to see what the exact price is. Would say ME time with any of the schools in the country comes in fairly similar. Michael747 made a good point about t...

NFC have a Duchess @ about 480 an hour (though you'd probably want to double check that price with them). Atlantic and PTC have Senecas I think.

From what I can gather, the rating is done in Shannon (think Galway might have been used in the past, not sure what the story is now).
