JAA Licence

Because The JAA licence is ICAO approved, You should be able to fly just about anywhere in the world. It is necessary to check though because aviation is extraordinarily over regulated and there can be slight changes from one country to another. You will certainly be OK in any European country though.

re Eppl

So should we try to get the UK NPPL in the meantime? Will this turn into the Eppl. Will a microlight licence be able to turn into a eppl?

FAA Licence

Is there any way to get trained here in Ireland for the FAA cert? I already have a long expired Irish licence. Would love to get back to flying, but find all the new rules far too onerous. I understand that once you have this licence you have it. Unlike the JAA type. I eould find it difficult to get...

Eppl

Would love to see those who had lapsed ICAO licences have an easier way back to getting their EPPL. Just a checkride, would be great.

Does anyone know what we are going to get in the recreational pilot scheme? This scheme certainly looks good in the USA 600kg etc. What are the proposals for the European version? Will it be brought into ireland?

Regarding USA training

They both sound professional in fact I would say that from talking with them they sound like they will get you through the course in maybe not in a flying club way but in a more formal way. I would sa...

There is no problem getting the CAA licence for use in Ireland because it is a JAR Licence. Once it is a Jar Licence it can be used in any JAR country. The only problem is that all courses in the USA are CAA JAR and therefore it is best to have all the writtens done before going over as then you can...

CAA Exams

Is there anywhere in ireland that we can sit the CAA PPL exams? I am planning on going to USA to do the full course and would prefer to be in a position to come home with a licence preferably in the minimum time. All advice is to get the exams done beforehand. All the schools over there that run JAA...

They tend to put manners on pilots? What does this mean?

Next time I am flying I will have a look at the Samba Wilo. I remember doing many touch and gos at Abbeyshrule so at least I should be able to find my way!
