Most regional airport's will accept a flight plan over the radio for exit from Class C to Class G. They usually ask for POB, elapsed time in CTR, fuel endurance,brief details of your flight and max.altitude. You should close it at the CTR Boundary. If you require a flight watch beyond the CTR then f...

I would take "hard all weather" runway in Ireland to mean tarmac or concrete. Anything else would be too expensive to maintain. If you had such a runway you could then have air taxi type commercial operations Navajos, King airs etc etc (provided of course the fire cat.was up to it). Very h...

Waterford Airport have one opposite PTC upstairs in the building for review.

Looks a bit cluttered.Print quality not great but I reckon thats due to its draft status.

Anyone know when the final version will be published ?

Try a search on Ebay... you might get a good deal. Getting both sides of the radio comms depends on your equipment and the aerial that you use. I can very clearly hear Shannon 124.7 and the high level frequencies while driving in the Clonmel area. Shannon have transmitters placed around the country,...

Hopefully you won't have many dark days but will instead enjoy the journey.You have said that you have a strong interest so you will have fun. I would suggest going for the Class 1 if that is where you ultimately will end up. Better to find out now if there are going to be any problems before you sp...

Waterford opened in Dec 1981 with 1200m of runway, extended sometime in the 1990's to 1433m, same runway just a little bit at each end.

So the present runway is that old, its just the 233m extra isn't.

Suppose Lambada you were still in Pampers when all this was going on !!

Cannot give you the definitive answer.

But I understand that Military aircraft are exempt from the requirement.....so I would suggest no they are not equipped with TCAS.

But I wait to be corrected.................................
