Re: PPL Life Insurance

T, All I can tell you is that my broker told me the exact same thing. Policies (that he took out for me) prior to my deciding to learn to fly are still valid after I decided to learn, provided that I had no intention of learning before taking out the policy. However if I wish to amend that policy in...

Re: Mabey more bad news for Galway

Hi JFH,

Where was that published?

Now that no terminal is to be built, there is little reason not to allow GA in. They aren't interferring with the construction work.

Re: Mabey more bad news for Galway

Could be the government just flying a kite to see what the reaction is. It's not as if they are averse to doing that! No bad reaction or just minor reaction then go ahead! Big reaction then deny that it was ever their intention.

Re: Aerial Photography Flights Carlow and Dublin

A passenger can pay a share of fuel costs etc with the pilot paying a full share of the cost. SC, I'm not sure you're correct on this bit. I know the UK have an exemption that allows the passenger to pay a share, but I've never been able to find a similar provision in Irish leglisation. The rest I ...

Re: VFR at Night

Who do you think is more competent to ensure that the SVFR flight is complying with the regulations? Do you seriously believe that Shannon Control seeks permission from the IAA every time an SVFR is required? If they decided to discontinue SVFR, there would be a lot more than me creating a rumpus! ...

Re: VFR at Night

Jim, I think you're on a bit of a limb claiming ATC is the competent authority. The SERA defines it as ‘competent authority’ means the authority designated by the Member State as competent to ensure compliance with the requirements of this Regulation; That is the IAA not ATC. Of course we should be ...

Re: VFR at Night

Yes Jim. Look 5 posts above! I quoted 5010 to you. Look at the first requirement of ATC for SVFR. They can't give it at night!

This comes into effect in 2months.

Re: VFR at Night

SVFR will remain in operation for the following 5 Years or until EASA decides otherwise, Jim, My understanding is EASA has decided otherwise from 14 Dec 2012! See the SERA here. http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2012:281:0001:0066:EN:PDF See Article 11 Article 11 Entry into...

Re: VFR at Night

But perhaps it might be easier to pursuade the IAA to allow night flight if they thought it would only be happening to regional airports ;) But once the cat is out of the bag....

Re: VFR at Night

Jim, The new Single European Rules of the Air have been published. It includes the big quoted below. So unless the IAA make a general authorisation, we won't be allowed to do SVFR at night in the future! So I guess they have to decide which thing they want to opt out of. VFR at night, or the ban on ...

I started flying in 2001 and I believe the 1500 rule was there then.

Re: VFR at Night

If you departed the UK at night, in say your Cessna bug-smasher 150, and plodded on westwards over the Irish sea in the dark ; When would you actually fly into the Irish "NO FLY AT NIGHT" boundary that is in class G airspace if you are operating VFR? The same too, but let's say I take off from my h...

Re: VFR at Night

The class D part isn't too relevant, as the first document linked to is simply the UK implimenting the Single European Rules of the Air (part of which Aviators Guide has linked to). My understanding is the same as Aviators' Guide's. The Single European Rules of the Air will be far from Single Europe...

Re: Skyvector Worldwide

No argument there Bob ;) I just wanted to point it out in case people place too much reliance on it's airspace depiction for areas that they aren't familiar with. I imagine though that most pilots going beyond the home path these days have some sort of flight planning / gps system such as PocketFMS ...

Re: Skyvector Worldwide

It seems to be missing a lot of airspace around Shannon, Cork & Kerry.

Good for some quick "what if" but no replacement for something with proper airspace definations.
