With the exchange rate flying is cheaper up there too. Costs me about 140 euro/hour to fly a Pa-28 Archer. It was costing me 180/190 about 6 months ago :shock:

Hi guys, I flew a Grob 115A EI-CAE out of Sligo for a while a year ago. The guy who owns and instructs on it said he had it in Coonagh before. He said he actually landed it with 2 POB as he was dropping someone off and said the take-off was quite tight. I'm not sure about fuel on board but he wasn't...

Well I've applied to CTC and my application passed so I'm hopefully going over to Bournemouth after Christmas for an interview, testing and assessment. Failed the Irish Air Corps but they are not recruiting until 2009 now anyways.

Thanks for that. I was in a PA-28-181 so I would not even chance puttin her down even for a touch and go. A cub or a Rallye would probably do the job there but the approach to it was scary thinking of how you would actually land if I had to.

I flew over this strip again yesterday and I flew an approach into it. It is stated in Kevin Glynns VFR flight guide that its 700m?? Would it be him who estimated the length visually? On approach, to me, it looked to be about 400m.

Cadetship/Sponsorship Schemes to be a Commercial Pilot

Hi everyone. If anyone comes across these schemes while doing research online can you please post the link here to make everyone aware. Examples would be CTC Wings, Air Atlantique and Highland Airways. I would be greatful and I'm sure many other people on this forum would be too. :)
