Re: 24hr PPR in EIKN

The really annoying thing about it is that we should and could have a system like the US. Just like in the US ATC here , at least as I understand it, work directly for the regulator. So local politics and local commercial decisions shouldn't feature in ATCs mind when making controlling decisions.

Re: 24hr PPR in EIKN

W,

Out of curiousity, did you get a reply from the marketing manger that you left a message for? Were they able to cast any light on things?

Re: 24hr PPR in EIKN

24 hours is stupid. It's twice the time Special Branch need for a trip into Northern Ireland/UK. I'm surprised that this was done over the radio. Is it the case that you were looking for PPR over the radio? If so, I wonder was his gripe really that he wanted PPR by phone, but had nothing to back up ...

Re: Insurance Loading for PPL's

When I told my like assurance company many years ago that I had taken up flying they said that it wasn't a problem and there was no increase in premium. If the policy was taken out in advance of you having any intension to learn to fly then what you chose to do subsequently has no effect on the pre...

Re: Aran Islands

Even if you don't require a licenced airfield, you do still need the owners/operators permission. Here's a hypothetical scenario - aircraft is damaged by debris on the runway outside hours, owner seeks compo, who pays? This could be a factor in Aer Arann's reluctance to allow operations outside hou...

Re: Aran Islands

I don't see the reason why the airfields need to be staffed for visiting private GA flights. Such flights can legally land at unlicenced airfields. If the airfields were to revert to unlicenced status when the staff are absent it would not cause a problem for such private GA activity. Normal radio ...

Re: Biggest move forward yet

I don't think it's anything to do with customs, immigration or Special Branch.

It's to do with recognition that an aircraft on a permit in one country is airworthy in another country without having to go through formal paper work to prove it.

GARs will stay in place unfortunately.

Re: Sending a PM

Yes. It remains in your outbook until the other person opens it. Once they open it, it moves from your outbox to your sent items.

Re: Staff sit-in at Galway Airport

I'm torn on this one. Everything that Inverted said is correct, and it's impossible to argue with him on this. He's 100% correct. However if Galway is lost, then it is lost, and is unlikely ever to be available again. I appreciate that there are probably some smaller strips around, but it is likely ...

Re: Support Erinagh Airfield

What has happened on this case?

I don't really understand the court records. The last item mentioned was the 12/12/11 was "Non Jury Interm" which was 'perfected' on 23/12/11.
