NPPL Question

Has anyone experience of whether a visitor from the UK may fly in Ireland on an NPPL? Is the answer so obviously "no", that this is a silly question? (i) It seems that a microlight may be flown in Ireland on an NPPL(M) if this is validated by the IAA and with a Class 2 medical and fee paid. However ...

I spoke to Campbeltown recently, intending a weekend trip as there's a new golf course beside it. Bizarrely, doing their extra special bit for local tourism, they are totally closed every weekend :shock: . And the usual HIAL indemnity arrangement for out-of-hours movements does not apply to this air...

Yes the "blue carpet" shot (sorry about that - just learning how to post images!) was taken a fraction of a second after the other one, as 'VII climbed skywards away from the audience. http://rv6.net/aviation/photos/P9131549c.jpg I got to see some more of 'VII from its six o'clock later as I tried u...

May I add my congratulations to the organisers of and contributors to Saturday's excellent event. That was a really imaginative idea, and hopefully there will be follow-ups and some lasting consequences!

Newcastle is in great shape now, and was an excellent venue.

That video captures it very nicely, Harry!

It was indeed a very good and well-organised fly-in.

Tannkosh 17-19 July

I am planning to fly to Tannkosh, and on the return legs of this flight (actually Switzerland [15 July] -Tannheim [17-19 July] -Ireland) it seems I will have a spare seat.

Anyone interested - form an orderly queue please!

[I.e. send me a pm ......]

I'm thinking of flying myself down to Cork next week, what's the story about parking at the club area and avoiding the dreaded "handling"?

My reference to a hypothetical pilot from France was merely to highlight the complex notification requirements for flying around within the British Isles. A foreign pilot would surely have difficulty figuring out what to send to which authority and when. He would be really perplexed as to why the po...

Just a small point re Bladecrack's first post on this thread: As he says, entry/departure from the UK should be notified to HMRC NCU on the number he gives, with a GAR form. However this is separate and in addition to the obligation to notify the local police force, using the same GAR form. Notifyin...

That's a useful summary of the different country requirements as they apply to permit-to-fly aircraft generally, although some of the info seems to be not altogether accurate.

Does the IAA really charge a fee of eur80 for a foreign microlight to visit Ireland?? :shock:

No, ctl, the GAR is only needed if you land in the UK.
