Hi, FoxP
You fly out of Coonagh and you don't know where Hum International is? The owner is a Coonagh instructor. If you don't know by now... :roll:

Pressure...

Hi all I have wondered what kind of pressure is there on pilots to get their punters to their destination, regardless of weather. I live in West Wicklow and have seen quite a few helicopters going by, in very marginal weather,definitely nudging the margins of Special VFR. Anyone care to comment? reg...

Aviation lapel badges..

hello all
I have, for sale, sixteen lapel badges, of Soviet origin, featuring Soviet-made aircraft such as the IL-18, TU-144, IL-2,etc. They are in good condition, having been bought in Sofia, Bulgaria in 1997. They are made of aluminium or tin and some are enameled.

Aer Lingus

Hi all As an employee of Aer Lingus, I have to say that I am unenthused about WW's desire to float the company, under his MBO proposal. I believe it would involve more extensive staff cuts, more "yellow-packing" of staff terms and conditions(except the pilots) and a further "Ryanair"-isation of the ...

PTC...

hallo there Thanks for your reply, which is very comprehensive. Personally, I would rather see even a basic Frasca sim being available as it would save IFR students an awful lot of money to practise the basics in a cheap sim rather than an expensive aircraft. It would also keep students busy when th...

PTC and others...

hello again.... Your point is well taken, Mr.Bungle, but i would prefer to be as well informed as possible before I cross the Atlantic or whatever. In my experience, customer service, as practised in your average supermarket, is still considered a new and unfamiliar concept in some flight schools. S...

Escapade...

hallo there this aircraft would have to be registered with the SAAC or the NMAI, the groups dealing with homebuilts and microlights respectively. Failing that, it would not be given an Irish registration by the IAA. If it goes on the G-reg, it falls under the PFA or BMAA and would need the attention...

Hi there I did my CPL/ME-IR there in 2001 and found that the place was very much a mixed bag. The individual instructors were nice people who gave very good training and the overall quality of the training was good. The briefings were comprehensive and the instructors often gave extra gen/tuition wi...

Hi all the Cessnas have long had their firing circuits removed. It would be equally simple to do the same to the Marchettis. The aperature in the wing where the pylon fits could easily be riveted over. There is talk that the Belgian Air Force are interested in taking them. More importantly, what wil...
