Great to hear positive news at Kilkenny, I always loved the place on the odd occasion that I zipped in. Oh by the way, legally Kilkenny is a town, see the Local Governments Act 2001. You are allowed use City for occasion ceremonial usage. Look forward to dropping in in the not too distant future.

ILS are only set up to have the normal signal monitored.

As far as I can see remember there is an Irish AIC out (can't remember the number) that states you shall have a transponder to enter the Class C airspace that Galway and all the other Irish Regionals occupy. Nothing to do with being "friendly" or not.That's the law. I wonder what the outco...

Has anyone in Dublin written to the DAA?

There are a lot of spotters in Dublin, they need to get together and engage with the DAA and the Fingal ? Council.

Up to last year the Dutch Air Force was still using the Alouette III (and they still may be using it)

Just beacuse it not the last wizz bang machine does not mean is a bad helicopter. Just look at the S61N, the aircraft in Waterford is the oldest in service and it is well over 40 yrs.
