if you dont agree, though luck, the rest of the planet thinks its such a good idea its the law A bit of a sweeping statement there Dara I'd say, and anyway if no one questioned the law or laws then what a sorry state we'd find ourselvs in. As a P2 pilot I'd rather question and check a P1 decision r...

Xacto, Irish251, !! I read the Wikipedia stats, and have to say many of them landed/ditched in SHALLOW water, the hijacked plane passengers held onto a floating wing!! As for the pprune extract, a bit self congratulatory, and not a little patronising I thought but....I'm not advocating not listening...

All those accidents 100's 1000's maybe ?, and the best you can come up with is two ?? :shock:
Yet 90% of the safety briefing involves how to put on a life jacket, and use the whistle and light ??

Come on a few more at least ? :roll:

Life Jackets on Airlines WHY?

Why are there Life jackets under your seat ???? When has a commercial airliner sucessfully ditched on water and had the passengers exit out on the slides. Aircrafts disintegrate when they hit the water !! remember the famous footage of the hijacked plane landing off the beach !!! That's what happens...

The Weather Predictor we presently use in Kilkenny is very Accurate

If you can see Mt Leinster from the Tower......It's going to rain.
If you can't see Mt Leinster from the Tower......It is raining.

It's obvious (and courtious) to get permission from the college, but what else???

I'm pretty sure it doesn't have a registered helipad so what does he need??


His head examined, would be a good start. :roll:

Really well done Gerry Kevin and Laura !! Summed it up for all of us....

Well done again, maybe the crowd in work will stop th...

Shannon Information 5th May

I know good weather brings good humour, but yesterday I would like to compliment the controller on Shannon Info who was on from 12-2pm, so helpful and good humoured to a busy bank holiday GA community, making the most of their hobby. Thanks !

Instead of having an Examiner allocated to you and organising it between yourselves. You will coordinate with the IAA and they will find an Examiner who is available on the day of the test.


What sense ! :o , maybe only a suggestion but just might catch on, lets hope.
Thanks Buzz

Thanks People, Flyer I've heard that now it's anywhere between 6 to 12 months if you reside in our sunny SE, which is a Royal P.I.T.A as I'm within a spit of applying (After what seems like 700 years) so in effect you could spend a further 15 hrs staying current, which would in effect be a full year...

PPL Flight Test

From time of application to the Ol IAA how long does (or did!) it take to get the flight test.
I know depends on weather, examiner availability etc. so just in general will do. Cause I'm hearing rediculous time lines for the south east :roll:

Have to say as was the case with the 777 at Heathrow, no one died, or were hurt, the Airline or it's crew were not Irish, OK might have ended up in Ireland, but I dont think that any major assumptions were made on this forum, a little light banter maybe, and no one could be hurt by same, it'...

A few questions...? Go easy with replies if they are a bit simple like Is 600ft not a bit low if you are still 2 miles out ? Maybe normal glideslope I don't know. Why no fire ? If the engines failed to respond to manual, and auto thrust then why are there theories on windshear ? Surely the problem w...
