We at Coonagh know our days flying there are limited but the threat is not immediate : it depends on implementation of development plans locally I started flying there in 1959 and there are few better venues.

Well it was perfectly legal when I got my PPL/IR - and I haven't seen any change at ICAO since

It depends on the confidence you have in your powerplant

Statistics show - or did - that power failure rates very low as fatality cause for single-enge IFR flight

ICAO, FAA, JAA, IAA Harmonisation

Just a few points arising from very interesting Posts above Having sat on a JAA / FAA Harmonisation talk-shop in the '90s I can vouch that the reason - then at any rate - why FAA/JAA ATPL reciprocity failed was not that the end product (the 5,000 hr Boeing Capt) lacked equivalence but that the FAA a...
