I don't really want to be making funny noises but what would be the opinion on the idea that with planning approval granted for the expansion of Dublin airport, GA will surely be squeezed out as an unnecessary nuisance? For the GA pilots and aircraft based there, where would they go?

So generally speaking, you'd all recommend Flightwise?

Thinking of doing a bit with them now and just wondering what the general opinion of them was. I really just don't want to waster my time being fluffed about by an inefficient flying school.

Thanks in advance guys.

Apologies Willo if I offended your PPL (A) sensibilities. I'll refrain, in the future from speaking above my position on matters I am surely to be ignorant of (being a lowly PPL(M)). Indeed I have been humbled and will now proceed inflict a suitable punishment upon myself and will make it my busines...

While i resented the training requirements for so long while training for an Irish PPL (M) i feel better for having done it now that I'm qualified. I feel like I'm a better pilot for it and enjoy having that quality of training behind me - what annoys me though is that the IAA make us jump through t...

Would definitely be interested!
Would be well worth investigating if nothing else.....

Driving a 4 hour round trip to fly denies the opportunity to fly on nice evevings or gaps in the weather as well as taking up half a weekend and can be very tiresome.

Thanks for the info lads.

900EX apparently yes, i was serious, something that occured to me as i wasreading some of the posts and i threw it in there - this is a discussion forum after all. No one asked for your sarcasm and if you didn't feel like posting a reply you shouldn't have.

Not exactly on the same subject but a question on doing your PPL in the US. Was wondering how the licences are issued, i.e. does the school issue you with a certificate of a pass and you then apply to your home state (IAA) for the actual licence? Another thing i wonder about is the night rating avai...

Stainless steel one would indeed be class (navy mug being a good second) - they could go with the MICRO_FLEECE.

Ideas are like children, you always think your own are the best.

polo shirst sound like a nice idea - how about a colder weather top to wear in a/c during winter months. I think hiker's / walker's 'micro-fleece' top would be ideal they're incredibly warm (and somewhat windproof) and in no way bulky - perfect for winter flying.
