Another major factor is that although it should be a hanger Queen it is not. Its spends a lot of time with the tail hanging out of the hanger because the hanger is too small. Thats why there was so much corrosion on the tail. It probably would have been 10 times cheaper to build the correct size han...

Am a plank driver with a intrest in Helicopters so not an expert by any means, I think its a Sikorsky S-76.

For two points who can narrow it down to sub model i.e C+ etc?

Lazza, Perhaps I wasn't quite as clear as I could be. You might read what I wrote again. The big problem is getting the Pilot licenced to fly IFR. It takes an amount of money that would buy a share in most GA aircraft and takes a huge amount of effort to pass and study the exams. In Britain for exam...

You can't fly IFR in a permit aircraft,


As has been mentioned before, the vast vast majority of GA in Ireland is VFR only. Its is incredibly expensive and difficult to get licenced to fly IFR and the whole set up in Ireland doesn't really favour it. So I think as Joey says, its a Moo point.

A piece of professional PR advice, don't refer to your publics as "morons". This is a public forum and is the type of resource that journalists use to research opinion.


I didn't say I was the one getting PR advice! :wink:

They are certainly not MY public either...

We discussed this before. m would they agree to have planes buzzing around there houses at night, would You? No I don't have to as I didn't buy a house 150m from the threshold of a runway, and I hope to goodness if I did I would have the cop on to realise that I moved in beside an aiport and NOT vic...

Without trying to sound bias towards aviation!!!, Weston's operaters have already claimed that the aerodrome was there before the local housing estates and at the moment seem in the resonable clear- not to say the battle won't go on! Byron, I could not agree more with the Operators. I have vented m...

The neighbours are going to go into convulsions if there is any consideration of 24 Hour operation. They already are and the field doesn't operate before 9 in the morning and most of the year is quiet before 5. Can you imagine whats going to happen when a Lear or a Gulfstream lands at 3 a.m over tho...

In my not very informed opinion (Big Bar Stool expert), it would be very hard to justify the expenditure of an ILS for such a small field with relatively small amounts of movements. Your talking Millions for all of that, although if they are ever hoping to get night Ops in there with the VOR they wi...

However my understanding is that as the IR is a rating and not a licence that it could be completed in any other JAR state and not neccesarilly in the state where the original JAA licence was issued Yes you are exactly right on that. Using myself as an example again, I did mine in Spain although I ...

YoYo, The point I ws trying to make was that only a UK issued JAA CPL will allow you an hour reduction for a conversion from an FAA IR to a European IR. If you had done your ATPL writtens in Ireland and the CPL skills test and had an FAA IR the IAA would still require you to do a full IR. If however...

That said,has anyone out there converted an FAA IR to JAR IR and if so what are the requirements by the IAA. I have converted FAA IR to JAA IR, but onto a British licence (JAA). As far as I could tell there is no conversion onto an IAA licence but there is onto the British one. What specifically do...

Not quite forty paces but here is a quote from an accident report that spells it out fairly clearly. I meant that in a respectfull way! I don't understand why people who fly an N-Reg full time get a licence based on another. Why not just do the full FAA PPL, its not especially difficult and its val...

Pretty sure if you wish to exercise your FAA priviledges it must be on an N-Reg aircraft and even then I am not sure if the IAA would let you loose that easy but just an opinion I can't quote you a line from a rulebook FLY but I would be fairly confident your wrong there. A lot of people who fly pr...
