Re: C152 POH?

Re: AAIU Reports

Hey Lynn, Not sure if said advice is worth any more than you paid for it, but there are lots of ways to learn to fly other than buying a microlight on your own. For the price of a cheap two stroke you could get a share in a vintage/basic 2 seater and go flying with the other groupies. Most people ar...

Re: Microlight Flying in Cork

Best advice is to get a packet of biscuits and make a date to call out the lads in Fermoy. It's microlight HQ for Cork!

Anyone interested in cheap Multi Engine hour building?

Hi, Just want to see if there is any interest in cheap multi engine hour building? EASA reg IFR equipped twin, based EIAB and will have landing cards to EIKN/EISG/EGAB. If you are interested, it will probably be 5 hour blocks based on €280 per hour (tach) . Sensible group operational rules apply, bu...

Re: End of Life (Scrap) Airplanes Wanted

Most "end of life" aircraft end up like that due to corrosion, uneconomic maintenance requirements and changes in the owners plans. The ones where people have lost lives end up in the AAIU in Gormanstown. They are strictly scrapped from there. So the chances of us using one for Airsoft etc where the...

Re: Advice re Transponders

The mode S is nice to have but, I do still feel it's just another "target on your back" so various authorities know where to stick the knife...... No experience with Trig but it looks like it could be fiddly to use on a bumpy day. The Garmin 327 is great if you don't need mode S but want the look/fe...

Re: Aerial Photography Flights Carlow and Dublin

Leaving aside the constraints already mentioned, most novice passengers end up taking crap pictures of the things they'd like to photograph. It a cold thankless job getting good accurate pics. My best recommendation is to go flying, perhaps for a lesson if you want a spin in a plane. If you want rea...

Re: VFR at Night

"Needless to say, implementation of this regulation would avoid the need to seek SVFR, although there never appears to be any issue of receiving it...." So how do I get this SVFR clearance to fly at night in Class G airspace? If you read read: http://www.caa.co.uk/docs/33/InformationNotice2012145Co...

Where is the "NO FLY AT NIGHT" line drawn there? I can't see it drawn on any maps...

I could be wrong but I think it's called the FIR Boundary 8)

Re: End of Life (Scrap) Airplanes Wanted

Really badly need to find a big end of life Twin engine airplane. A Cessna 300/400 series or similar would be ideal? I've asked in all the usual places. If there is anyone with a big old twin shoved in a hedge, or knows where there might be one drop us a PM. I know there is a B55 lying in Abbeyshrul...

Re: VFR at Night

Agh it's a good thing we leave nothing to chance in Ireland. I'll be waiting for the UK AAIB website to implode with the gruesome details of all the british pilots they've scraped off various mountains at night, as they fall foul of the privileges offered by the new legislation. Chances are I could ...

Re: VFR at Night

Part-SERA is expected to come into force on 4 December 2012 (albeit with a transition period enabled until 4 December 2014). This Regulation will allow Member States to decide whether to allow aircraft to fly under VFR at night and it is anticipated that all European States will choose to follow th...

Dave's famous "zero g short field technique" seems to have played a big part here. I must figure that one out sometime... In house IP!
