Radar and lack of ILS is not a show stopper for Tranatlantic flights.

Radar provided by Dublin or Baldonnel ATC, VOR/DME approach.

Length of the runway would be. Aircraft could depart light and stop for a "splash and dash" at Shannon.

" It effectively opens the flood gates for IFR commercial operations and with that the end of GA ops and training as the more revenue abudant commercial activity takes priority" Is there going to be that much commercial activity ?

You could politely tell the controller that for training purposes and traffic permitting, you would like to fly the full procedure without the assistance of radar vectors.

Mark well done on making it to Vol.2.

Your photo is worth framing and putting up in the den but I wouldn't because of all the text.

Look forward to Vol. 3 !!!

I don't think the problem would be foresight...there is loads of that with the current airport board, the problem would be getting the finance to pay for it. The location of Waterford Airport was a re-occuring local media topic a few years ago, I think it is accepted (locally) that it is where it is...
