Re: D-FOLI

This aircraft was operating in my area on Thurs 29.04.2010 14.30 to 16.40. It carried out about 15 N/S runs over Mulroy Bay. I think it covered the entire lenght and width of the bay. Then to-day (Sat) it reappeared at 13.30. This time it changed it's headings slighty to NNW and SSE. Again it seemed...

Re: Banner Towing

Possibly something to do with Loyns House-Lyons Estate - which is 3nm W of Baldonnel. But in relation to what, I do not know. Maybe a pop music event??

Re: Bantry / Helicopter landing site

Your other question was about Bantry Airstrip and yes it's still open. Contact Denis Connolly-ROWA Pharmaceuticals 087-8127366 or 027-50077.
The hotel is a lot closer to the town. You pass it on your right coming from the airstrip.

Re: Bantry / Helicopter landing site

Hi Jones, Try this. I checked with them a few years ago and then they accepted helis but if they dont or expect you to stay in the hotel, they might know of a location that could be used. If you do find another site I would be very interested in it. Bantry House Hotel 1k WSW of Bantry town centre Ba...

Re: Trying to track down a Lake Buccaneer

Possible contender is G-BASO which has been stored minus prop at (Eglinton) City of Derry Airport for many years now. Go to G-INFO and type in BASO in the registration box.

Re: Passenger Manifests

Get a judge to sign a court order to give you the name, otherwise the answer is no. As far as I know no airline will pass on that kind of info.

Re: Floatplane Ratings with the NFC. Just in time for Summer!

For normal oprations it would seem no. Over the years I've heard of landings on canals. rivers, loughs (freshwater) and the sea. Training would be different, probably a licensed site would be needed. But I dont know of any licensed marine sites in Ireland. Anyone know different??

Re: Contrasts CAA-IAA

Some of the replies are missing the point I was making. I am NOT suggesting that the IAA relax the rules for training from un-licensed strips. That would be tooooooo much to ask. If you re-read the sentence below, you will better understand what I'm getting at. I wonder if our own IAA could read thi...

Contrasts CAA-IAA

Not so long ago the CAA seemed to be a bit anti light aviation, well certainly not anymore. In fact they now seem to be bending over backwards to accomodate the LAA in their request for a more lenient outlook on some light aircraft training. Excellent responce from the CAA. I wonder if our own IAA ...

Re: Cessna 150 For Sale

An average of less than 1 hour a day for the lifetime of the airframe SOUNDS ok. But it's mostly down to the kind of use/abuse the airframe receives during it's life. But good maintainance should keep in the best shape posible.

Re: New FII Site

Well at least I'm not the only one. It's FAR to cluttered. Too much going on, on the one page. But that's the style on the majority of web sites nowadays. So much that I dont bother going onto the forum anymore, just check whats new on the opening page.
Like Bearcat, must be getting OLD!!.

Re: EI-BJO

Thanks Donal,

Thought I hadn't seen any mention of the aircraft recently. Didn't know it was a floatplane. Any idea where it flew from in that configuration.

Re: EI-BJO

Oscar Bravo, I forgot to answer you question about the base for EI-BJO. It was always Galway/Carnmore and as the register say's the present owner lives in Oranmore I think we can assume that is right. But a little further down the register EI-BMH MS880B Rallye is shown as still registered in Falcarr...
