Ther is a grey area in the old PPL(M) licence.
It MAY be legal to fly on it here, some clause within that does not necessiate being validated for use here.... I have the NPPL and had to have it validated by having class2 medical and relevant RT + ?80 to the IAA for the privelage.

Talk to some people who own them...Earlier X-Airs have narrower doors and the newer ones have had a few changes.... there is also quite a lot of extras ...

Re: UK NPPL(M) I have a UK NPPL(M) and I "validated" it with the IAA. U need a Class 2 medical and the RT. I found the RT course excellent and informative and well worth doing. The NMAI (National Microlight association Ireland) handle the application for validation of the UK licence on the...

Well Done, I fly quite a lot around your area and strangely enough this is the first I have heard of the Newry club. I did my training with Kernan Valley in Portadown and regularly fly up to the club. 60 members is amazing, we have only 18 members at our club that has been around for years. BTW, and...

Strange how the IAA can give a straight answer to the AAIB but not to anyone else isn't it.

Hey Zephyr, Why on earth go back to an insurer who initially over priced your renewal premium, only to chop their premium on hearing of a more competitive quote elsewhere. Reward the guy that gives the best initial quote - give him your business! Yeah, Tend to agree...... they will go along with th...

I also tried to get cover for my aircraft and only a couple of companies would cover me for full hull,3rd party and passenger. I too got full cover from towergate hall and clarke. One of the few companies who cover aircraft based outside the UK. I probably will seek other quotes when renewal is due ...
