I suppose, but that forum would be just leaving itself open to litigation. As far as I know you cant post as a guest on this forum, IMO or airpics.

There was a glich where guests could post on the board. There was a heated debate on certain issues with regard to the air corps and names were mentioned.

There is no need to use 61 for island relief. Off hand I can think of 4 companies in the west, Links, Executive, Premier and Westair who would be able to cary out this task, on smaller more practical helicopters. I suppose it all depends what you're trying to bring to or off the island. The compani...

Mary Harney got blasted from all quartes for jumping on an allouette and going up to Leitrim a couple of years ago, she then had to pay it back out of her own pocket And rightly so, if had nothing to do with running the country. When you think about it, Island relief, its genrally once a year, if t...

When you talk of "the S61 fleet" are you refering to the one S61 on contract in Sligo? Not much of a fleet.

No I am talking about the 5 S61's on the EI reg owned by CHC


This thread is about the Air Corps helis not CHC.

When I say VIP transport, I am referring to the government Jet, Ireland is a small country, very lttle need to ferry politicians around by helicopter for their own political gain! I'd be of the same opinion, but its a role for the LUH none the less. Unless we plan on claiming Rockall, there is no n...

I could break down everything you just said and tried to patronise you, but that would just be silly! Im not trying to patronise you. But its easier to break everything down. In the highly unlikely event of a Nuclear attack, why would they transport military troops to the scene, after the damage ha...

The token force down in Liberia is not on the same scale as previous Irish involvement in the Lebonan, yet they coped, very successfully by all accounts. How can you compare Liberia and Lebanon? Of course the scale isnt the same, The Irish peacekeepers were in Lebanon for more than 20 years, so tha...

Pilot forced to make emergency landing

THREE men had a miraculous escape last night when a Cessna plane was forced to make a 'belly landing' after its undercarriage failed. A full emergency alert was issued at Cork Airport at around 7pm as the plane circled the runway to burn off fuel and then made a wheels-up landing on the grass verge ...

"than giving toys to the armed forces unless they really, really need them"

These 'toys' wouldnt be the things that are keeping Irish soliders alive in hostile environments abroad?

Or do you mean 'really really need them' when soldiers start coming home in body bags?

The Marchetti SF 260 have been in service since 1977 and are being replaced by the PC-9s. The Alouette III came into service in 1963, Dauphin (1986), Gazelle (1973) are all being relpaced by this new tender for six choppers. So as you can see, all that is happening is replacing old air frames. The n...
