Good school, well organised most importantly with a high level of standardization and all my instructors were UK rated CPL/IRs which was important as they knew what QNH meant etc! The only thing I would say is that they were wayyyyy too expensive. The rates for instructors were about three times wha...

Hey guys, can anyone give the pros and cons of the Brookfield job? That is the tip of a very large Iceberg tba ! I would suggest you go to PPRuNe with a question like that, there are threads running probably into the hundreds of pages about the many pros and cons of Ryanair. I hope FI.com does not ...

I spoke to the owner today. They are looking for someone with a CPL to work for them on a part time basis. Anyone looking to build some hours should get in touch.

Brittas Bay is no longer.

Brittas airfield in Limerick is a private strip. I think the filming is happening/happened at the second one.

I would imagine it costs more at night because the big airports want the work done at night so as not to disturb traffic flow. Stansted could never afford to have it done during the day for example, way to busy. So the calibrator is in more demand at night time hence the price goes up. The aircraft ...

When you turn up for the Medical in the Uk don't mention anything about your results in Ireland unless legally obliged to.

Not disclosing required information is illegal, keeping quiet about things not required is shrewd.

There is an aircraft that calibrates the ILS and other Navaids every so often, Callsign "calibrator". It has to fly multiple approaches to do this. I am only familiar with the one in the US I saw which was a King Air, but they did it at night time to avoid disruption. I guess in Cork they ...

Incidentally Paul W I had trouble with the hearing requirements doing my initial Class 1 and I argued the toss, and got a consultant audiologist to argue the toss on my behalf. Don't give up to easily, many have similar problems and overcome them. I did and have never had a problem at renewal time.

If the amendments are already in place in the Uk, then book yourself a flight to the UK and do the medical there. You can use a CAA JAR Medical for an IAA licence or any other JAA licence if you wish. It seems to be another example of how, although we are all a part of the big JAA happy family, each...

A restricted FI which is what any of you thinking about becoming one will be for the first year, would probably do very well to break 12K a year. Don't be under any illusions.
