Re: Aran Islands

I,m visiting Ireland next week for a week . I guess theres all kinds of red tape for an American ppl holder who might want to fly an ''N' REG AIRCRAFT AS PILOT IN COMMAND .???? any Idea if the IAA has a say in FAA holders who want to fly N reg planes in Ireland or do i need VISA for that too !!!!!

Re: Aran Islands

It sounds to me like theres a shocking amount of red tape when it comes to general aviation in Ireland . Ive landed in the Aran Islands many years ago when I was a student pilot at EIKN and there was no PPR or any of that type of thing . Now it seems as if you even think about going flying you need ...

Re: PPL in ireland or USA?

I held an Irish PPL and now live in NYC and hold an FAA ppl . I would recommend the USA as a place to go get your Wings . Theres a few factors that help with training here in the USA , the flight schools are everywhere , the weather is good , ( if it rains well you can be sure it will stop ) the cho...

Re: 24hr PPR in EIKN

I hear you on the seperation of aircraft and the fact that ATC might be worried about seperating aircraft without being able to see any one on a screen . Would it not work if all VFR aircraft had to use the VOR at EIKN for their position reports , If the pilots /instructors know the VOR in the aircr...

Re: 24hr PPR in EIKN

I agree with most of whats been said , I learned to fly at EIKN ( when the weather was a little better than it has been ) and there was no PPR way back then . It sounds like EIKN controllers are making it sound like an airport about 10 miles away from me now ,KJFK in New York , in fairness , line tr...
