Hi M747
Why are Flightwise charging E500 memebership if they are a "school"? What's that five-hour rule I've been hearing about?

Hi all With respect, it is not entirely up to the IAA.The Ordnance Survey are the people who would actually generate the chart, so the actual publishing time is up to them. The Air Corps had a quarter-million for years, which was the old Ireland North-South-East-West with the airspace superimposed u...

Hi Cosmic I had a National CPL then. I had been to the same establishment in the UK three times in a row to renew my ME-IR.The IAA added the renewal to my license the first two times without question, as long as I had a copy the Instructor's approval with me when I came back.Despite the fact that se...

Hi there Tell me how to convert from IAA/JAR to CAA/JAR! In a pain-free fashion, of course! I rang Gatwick last year and they said "we won't issue you a CAA-originated JAA license unless you are coming to take up a job here". I asked, somewhat sarcastically, if all JAR licenses were created equal or...

Hi all The above will take place at SAAC Field, Taghmon,Co.Wexford on the weekend of the 27th of August. A good attendance of aircraft is expected, with the Classics (Cubs, etc) rowing in as well. If the weather gods are good to us, then the weekend should be a good one. Bring yourself, your aircraf...

Hi there I meant what I said when I said "permission". The IAA guy said, in 2005, " you didn't contact us for permission to attend that school before you went, so I'm not obliged to accept your renewal". I remember it because of the shock effect it had on me. When I went to EFT in 2001, I had to bea...

Hi there That assumes that the school you attend in Spain, or anywhere else, is approved by the IAA.I came back from attending a facility in the UK and went to the IAA to get the IR renewal entered in my license.Imagine my horror to be told that they would not accept it as (a)I hadn't asked permissi...

Piper Cub tyres

hi all
If anyone out there can point to a usable set of J3 tyres, I'd be interested.A wheel or two would be nice as well.

Hi there Most of the aircraft based at Kilrush are tailwheelers and you'll find that they have quite low crosswind limits.Secondly, it is common policy in schools and clubs not to fly above a defined figure, such as 20 kts wind.In the case of Kilrush, the airfield is not shut, as such, but only a fo...

canopies...

Hi Shay
What aircraft do you want a canopy for? Is it a certified aircraft or a Permit aircraft? It's not unknown for Permit owners to make their own canopies.Try SAAC or the PFA in the UK.

Hi there
Why would anyone, after having expended huge effort in putting them together, give their notes out for free? Just pay whatever it takes.In the great scheme of things, they're probably cheaper than a lot of other aspects of flight training.

Hi there I heard that Ryanair tried to get Boeing to pay for the retrofit, but Boeing had cut their price enough and said so. Ryanair had to get an STC to retrofit the winglets and had some fun with the IAA, as a result. The recent oil price hikes spurred them to take the hit and buy the winglets an...

Hi there I think they'll have a hell of a job proving Rans' to be negligent in a US court, given that the event occurred outside the US juristiction.It also hasn't been proved or disproved that the pilot didn't properly secure the filler-cap. I think it's ludicrous of the judge to make such an award...
