Re: The Newcastle Bisto BBQ

I have already booked out an aircraft to fly from EICN to EINC as a staging point to get to the airshow. What are the logistics or practicalities of getting from EINC to Bray? I presume train is an option. If there were a number of people interested would there be a local taxi / hackney which could ...

Re: Ireland's best scenery

My favourite terrain is the run down the valleys between Millstreet and Bantry via Gougane Barra (the source of the River Lee) at about 3,000 ft with the descent over Kealkill looking down the length of Bantry Bay - finished off with the spectacular over water approach to Bantry Airfield.

Re: Irish Airspace restrictions in place due state visits

Given how bad the weather has been for VFR flying since the start of May and looking at Met.ie for the next 3 or 4 days, I don't see too many of us being affected by the TFR's - for this week at least.

Then knowing our luck the weather will go CAVOK and light winds from Thursday for a week!!!

Re: Plane in Roscommon

Interesting info about BHY. Ex Limerick Flying CLub - sold to or though Dave Bruton a few years ago. I thought it had gone to the great scrap heap in the aviation sky. Obviously not.

Per FAA now registered to Patrick J Coyne from Co Galway.

I regularly do a three or four airport trip taking in places such Leesburg, Crystal River, Zeypherhills, Lakeland Linder, Bartow. A trip around these is about...

Re: English Language Proficiency

In ref to Hums FAA link, if you hold a piggy back PPL from the FAA, you actually have to go through entire verification process to have English proficiency added to your FAA ticket. New form to Oklahoma; email from IAA to confirm and a personal visit to FSDO to complete paper work and get new licenc...
