Hi Andy,
Still loving the DH Vampire over the PC here!

I think I might have your answer, one second...

The complete fleet list until 1988 or so?

I've send you through links to it on my server as of now.

Regards,
Byron

It's not a students responsibility to sort out admin and scheduling problems.


After ending up cancelled, and then bad WX at 8am on a Saturday morning I decided I'll give it a break for a few months, I'm sure I'll be hammered when I head back in...

Oh Well :lol:

The railway "could " be put into a tunnel,


I agree fully, the location is in a prime location, just prone to misfortune over the last few months, it could be the second INTL up north *** real INTL ***

I wonder if Ryanair will turn back on their decision like on everything else?, maybe a direct route from Dublin to Mullingar INTL for O'Leary?

IONA - was General Aviation in Ireland for several decades.


Echoed by so many, never properly replaced. I'm hoping for Horseleap still, cut out all the traffic and make Dublin gradually need a bit of GA

Talked to Eric last year. A very nice man, little activity unless you own a plane of your own, but, as of June 2006, the Irish Aero Club still was operating, if in a dormant, non-training capacity, because I did ask the question! Newcastles a nice aerodrome, small, quiet, but nice as it is, also ver...

Yes, I think it would be best if people are still interested in the idea to go with a service not on the same hosting as the website, therefore most of the liable is on a big multi-national corporation, who will crush anyone with a bad attitude! Chatrooms are easy to set up, murder to manage, more w...

Yes I had a problem with my Avatar for a while, then one day it appeared!

It seems like it is probably a modification to the code whereby the facility to upload is still available, but the actual implementation root is failing.

No one's fault, even the paid of us do it!

On the subject of Waterford, thank god! It's about time the city was finally given a proper airport, look at the development standards elsewhere! Further to your comments previously, in all fairness if Michael O'Leary, Air France and otherwise were reading these forums and taking everything seen on ...

As A Follow Up To My Late Night Comment ( ) I have links into the licensing dept in the IAA if it helps, they are very friendly at advising on issues addressed in their documents, and a meeting is easy enough to arrange. I suggest we do have a licensed field for insurance, etc. Also I volunteer my s...

Earnings are typically (worked it out with some hints from a friend in England) at independant flight school level, in around 50k sterling a year, but it can vary greatly, and if you are working for an airline it is possible for it to surpass PIC pay.

Either way, good luck!
