I was completely unaware that home builds were exempt from validation.

quick question Paul, Can multiple pilots be validated on the one aircraft? I assume this requires two separate application forms?

Re: ATTN Irish pilots flying to the UK

a little off topic but i have heard that single engine sea crossings of a certain distance are banned by the IAA? basically prevents crossing the irish sea at any point other than up north.
Cany anyone shed some light on this? Apparently the rule has been out years but only being enforced now.

It is nobody's risk or responsibility but the PIC of the visiting aircraft. Is there insurance implications for airfield owners here or something that I'm missing?

Re: Beware of Volcanic Ash

strange that they have reopened Irish airspace considering the latest graphic from the VAAC has the ash cloud completely enveloping Irish airspace.

A car gps running pocketfms will have all these features. obviously if it is not running pocketfms it will not.

yes you can. But you also have the option of creating a flightplan on the device while you are flying or doing a 'Direct To' or 'Go To Nearest' on the device. It is the same feature set as the PDA based solution. So you you can pretty much do anything( fly around with no flight plan, fly flight plan...
