shrtfld, I understand that Coonagh is on a year by year Lease? I would think that for the sake of a quiet life, at the first sign of any hassle with the neighbours that lease would not be renewed as easily, or if a developer gets their beady eyes on the land.

And why the IMC rating, though well intentioned has the potential to cause more harm then good. I don't think you can do IFR flight in half measures, it should be all or nothing. At this point I could bleat on about how it should be easier for a PPL to get an IR without having to run off and get an ...

I originally asked Mark to make this a sticky thread and he kindly did it. There was a new topic nearly every week at one stage and there was no on coherent place to talk about it. I think this has now been achieved with this thread, and it doesn't need to be a sticky anymore. It would be good thoug...

GPS as Primary Navigation

Following on from the Foreign Ops thread last week in this forum, as I was saying there were prosecutions in the UK because Pilots operating Cirrus Aircraft on airways and approaches that required by law the use of ADF and/or DME, but Pilots used GPS as the sole means of Navigation instead. There wa...

Pilot, thank you. One offer at least! Bearcat no worries. The written word can be interpreted in so any ways. Thats why we need lawyers If I was really going to be pedantic I would remind you that it is 100% legal to pay an equal share of your transport costs for a private operation. If two people g...

I'm a little dissapointed at the instant negativity but we suffer from that a little in this country. Theres a big gap between hire and reward and buying someone a sambo or a pint or a landing fee after a flight, lets be realistic Bearcat. Its come to nothing then, but hey, its great to see some mor...

Well there are enough people out there who could offer it but the question is will they? Its often been found that there are not as many takers as first expected.

Seats Available? An Experiment please help.

I saw this before on a few different websites. I thought I would give it a try on here and see how it works out. It may fall flat on its arse or be a great success. There are people out there who would like to go flying but can't always swing the cash or maybe they can no longer hold a medical, what...

Bearcat, European Reg Aircraft are not what the DFT and the CAA are after. As a G-Reg you are largely governed by the same rules as an EI aircraft. What they are after it would seem are people who they feel are outside the rules. N-Reg, OY etc. The root of these problems as I understand it, is the r...

Excellent stuff Lionel, I knew I was leaving a bit of bait for you and was looking forward to your response. I have done the Atpl's, CPL and IR. In some ways I like the fact that its a big hurdle to get over, its an achievement when its all completed and it is a fine net to weed out people of lesser...

Foreign/N-Reg Ops in Ireland, Should you be worried?

m From the British Department of Transport, worth a read if your operating an N-Reg or other foreign Reg aircraft in Ireland.I know this covers instruction but interesting to note also: It should be noted that the Department is currently reviewing the legislation affecting the use of foreign registe...
