Re: AAIU - Proposed Legislation - Air Sports

@Stovepipe I think to say that the comments about the PC9 inspectors were of a personal nature is untrue. It was the independence of the inspectors that was in question which (if I've interpreted your reply correctly) you also appreciate to be an understandable viewpoint. FYI, I'm in favour of the e...

Going by the footage they show, my guess is that they film from late Autumn to Spring whereas this happened during the Summer I believe.

Re: Dambusters - Building the Bouncing Bomb

Fantastic program. Great to see the guys from Buffalo Airways in action again. You just gotta love Chuck Adams, absolute riot.

Thanks for posting Mark

Re: Inishmann

The Island Co-Op that ran Inishmaan went bust and so Aer Arann Islands took over the running of it. I don't know the legalities of ownership though.

Re: Ireland's best scenery

If you like cliffs, check out Slieve League in Donegal, they are the highest cliff faces in Europe, breathtaking indeed. Have to correct you there Jon. I believe it's Croaghaun on the coast of Achill Island that holds the title of highest sea cliffs in Ireland and they are only second highest in Eu...

Re: IAA ATPLs - Which Question Bank to use?

As far as I'm concerned, the Bristol database is the best but then again, it was the only one I tried and pretty much everyone else will have the same story.

Re: Convergency (HELP PlEASE)

When I was trying to grasp convergency, I always found it easier to understand it if I used standard grids using curved lines to represent great circles. Laying out your point of departure and destination as in the diagram above will always be confusing as it's not clear how your heading will be cha...
