Hi guys, thanks for the replies. Looks like Inishmore is it then. A trip over the Burren and along the Cliffs will be perfect.

Which Aran island to visit?

Hi all, looking for some feedback from you guys who have flown out to the Islands.

Which of the three is the best to visit, ie. closest to a good eating establishment to make the trip worthwhile.

Many thanks

They recently (Hanlys) put some hardcore down to strenghten the ground. There is a C177 operating out of there, I believe it has a cruise prop fitted so anything with a climb prop should have no bother getting in and out. Give the boys a ring before you arrive though - there is sometimes various liv...

Hi RV They will probably be using a technique called H.A.H.O (High Altitude High Opening). Its a military form of parachuting enabling troops to be dropped a great distance from their objective, ie dropped in friendly territory and float across the border etc. Best of luck to the lads though. Wouldn...

Hi Pomki, The IAA and CAA have an agreement to accept each others ATPL exam results. Therefore you can study for the ATPL's in the UK and apply for an IAA CPL. I believe that they are the only Authorities who have this agreement. I recently asked a well known training school in Spain if they would a...

Hi All, I have a similar question to sppl's. What is a standard join here in Ireland? Most of my flying has been in Florida, the standard join there is to listen to Atis/Awos and enter downwind at a 45 degree angle so as to eyeball any traffic in the pattern. My only cross country experience here at...
