There was a really interesting bit on the telly about it back in the summer. One of those progs about news headlines over the years. It would be great if you could get a video clip of it too. I'd love to see that picture too.

Edit: This is a thread I posted about it a while back.

and noted that the glass cockpit in an SR22 is a great aid to the pilot when dealing with difficult situations. "It can provide so much information, on fuel burn, calculating distance to the airport, and so much more," Well its good that she took the opportunity to get an advertising plug in anyway!

I might have said that the military are also free to switch on and off their VOR anytime they wished. Maybe it was a reliability issue?

Garmin GPS wanted

Preferably Pilot III, may consider others. Should have all accessories. Must be defect free, in every way. Dublin Area would be nice but not a must. Please send me a message through the personal messaging system on this board.

CAA Class 1 Renewal

Hi, Have got a CAA Class 1 that I need to renew. I had always gone to the Matter Private. I am led to believe that there are other places it can be done? As usual I have left it late to renew and need it in a hurry which the Aeromed. section on the Matter can't always do.

Having done all my flying up to now in the US, I took my first flight out of Weston a couple of days ago. I had back seated the flight before and we went inland towards Trim Navan etc. The WX wasn't the best. I asked for my flight if we could head out over the coast because the WX was better and I w...

More nonsense at Weston

What is wrong with these Morons? Why are they given so much time in the Press and Courts? Its Simple: You buy a house 100m from a runway threshold and under a flight path, of an airport that has been there for over half a century, because the houses were cheaper, you live with it! Don't come whingin...

Air Corps. Formation flying Southside Dublin Today

There were 4 Air Corps Pilatus flying reasonably low level in tight formation. I was out working in my Garden and they did a few orbits. Looked and sounded fantastic. Although I did wonder why they were doing what they were doing. I suspect it might have been a flypast at some official event?

I thought I would get away with just that RomeoMike! In truth I couldn't remember myself so I dug out the books and had a look. The short answer is VOR transmitters should be sited on flat terrain to minimize site errors. The alternative is a Doppler VOR (DVOR) beacon and produces a signal which is ...

FFD, Its supposedly been given the "Nod",Verbal confirmation, and will be announced soon. Or so the rumour goes... I think the VOR they are installing is a Doppler VOR. This circular structure you see is not the foundation but the Transmitter itself. It works on a slightly different principle but wi...

On-yer-six, I understand your enthusiasm but offering to fly for "next to nothing" is very unfair on yourself and other instructors out there. You have worked hard for those ratings, and paid a lot of money for them. A fair days pay for a fair days work. You owe it to yourself.

RickL, I think you are mistaking my motives. The idea was to clear up some wrong information, nt to have a go at you. When I said that Ryanair were leading the way in charging for type ratings I did not mean it in a good way. It seems to have had a knock on effect in the rest of the industry. You ca...

Swansea EC120 Accident?

http://www.rallysport.com/news/wrc/arti ... 0469.shtml

I remember reading about this on the BBC website arund the time of the GB Rally of Wales. All reports said it was an Irish reg. Helicopter. A good search around on the AAIU, AAIB and NTSB websites have turned up nothing. Anyone know anything else about what happened?
