Re: State aerodromes - into wind runways

Well, there is nothing in this report which suggest to me that the pilot would have gone elsewhere if they had a north/south runway. Their original choice was Weton, and only changed that as it couldn't accept a flight from the Channel Islands.

Re: Irish Aviation Authority

I can't say that I've every had any problems with any of the IAA except the AeroMedical section. The AeroMedical section has a terrible reputation and as far as I have heard, has never returned anyone's calls! I certainly left plenty trying to sort out mistaken info that they'd given to the AMEs. My...

Re: Usher Aviation new website

UAI is not long enough in business to have these sort of claims made against them,irregardless now of whether they sorted the situation out with that guy in Hungary or not they have "dirtied their bib" so to speak. I agree with everything you said, but just to add, that if they did sort things out ...

Re: Aircraft Deicing Fluid

Thanks guys. Have no fears about my plans to fly in icing conditions! That is not the plan! I just found last winter that by the time I figured out that it was a nice day to fly, got to the aircraft and finally got all the snow and ice off it, it wasn't that far away from sunset! The winter days can...

Re: Apparently the IAA can only fund itself!!

bumitch, You are going off on a little tangent there ;) I never said any of the things you accuse me of saying....all of that came from your own thoughts. All I suggested was that if you wait on the regulator or GASCI to make representations on your behelf on this, I think you'll be waiting a long t...

Aircraft Deicing Fluid

Does anyone know where you can by aviation deicing fluid in Ireland. I'm looking for deicing fluid for decing general aviation aircraft while on the ground rather than inflight. I see it can be purchased from the UK, but the delivery costs are more than the product itself! http://www.kilfrost.com/on...

Re: Airband Radios v Transceivers

So having a transciever is not really of any use to me as I will have a radio in the aircraft and in the event of radio failure I have the transponder. I'm not sure that that is quite true. A transponder won't do you much good if you are outside controlled airspace with a radio that has failed and ...

Re: Apparently the IAA can only fund itself!!

I don't think that is in the legal remit of the regulator. I doubt it will be within the terms and reference of the GASCI either. We do have a number of organisations though whose remit such charges do come within. NMAI, AOPA & NACI. I suppose if you feel that way (which I understand) you should ask...

Re: Airband Radios v Transceivers

The radio allows you to listen. If you are any distance from the airport, you will most likely only be able to hear the aircraft and not ATC. You'll need to be pretty close (have direct line of sight) to be able to get ATC transmittions on the radio. I got one when I did my PPL too, and to be honest...

Re: GASCI Comment Deadline Extended

How are we supposed to make comments on the GASCI? I had expected a standardised form on the IAA website but can't find anything.

Do we just send a 'free text' email?

Re: PLS HELP ME,I PURCHASED A PLANE FROM IRELAND

Hi Anthony, I suppose what you need is to speak to a solicitor (lawyer). You can find one on the "Golden Pages" phonebook website. http://www.goldenpages.ie/q/business/advanced/what/solicitors/ They will advise on how best to solve the matter, but it will cost you. If the amounts in dispute is less ...
