Re: Aviators Guide BONUS - Garmin GDB file

Lorcan/William,
Just received mine this morning. Looks really good with a seeming emphasis towards the microlight

Re: Night Flight around Boyle

Balkanhawk, The concept of reporting a fellow pilot for doing something "illegal" would be foreign to most GA pilots. Even if this flight were "illegal" what harm is it?

FAR 61.57(b) uses an hour before sunrise to an hour after sunset for currency. FAR 1.1 states SS ...

Re: SEP Revalidation

Keith T,
Why not get an Irish examiner to revalidate your CAA SEP rating before you change. There are 2 examiners in NFC, Weston so not too hard to find.
