Great idea, if it's kept updated. Is this going to do to the Kevin Glynn book what the internet did to the music industry though?!? :)

Was just thinking about this lately. A private pilot would pay at least 50% more for a mortgage cover policy. Apparently this is simply because we're far more likely to die. These stats are worked out by actuarial scientists who simply take the number of aviation deaths per number of licences issued...

Got my degree in NUI Galway over 4 years and tend to disagree with you there Scraganne. And as for the Nav charges, well not paying them seems like an option, but certainly not if you plan on transiting regularly. If you have cash outstanding they might tell you to feck off!
