Second Aldergrove as a good destination to visit. We even send students there are part of their qualifying XC. No dramas and what visiting airports should be about. Not some jumped up tinpot airport with delusions of grandeur. Flightplans, I ask you. :roll:

Had a look in Easons Dunrum town centre yesterday, no sign. Sold out or not in yet?

Also be a good idea to ensure a/c docs are in order. Very strong probability of ramp checks both north and south.

If you do a search on the CAA web site, you will find the test standards for candidates for all the tests. All the manoeuvers required, plus the tolerances allowed. The CPL test is indeed pretty much the same, the tolerances are much tighter though. You are allowed much less latitude in varying from...

1. Don't assume that JAA means you can pick and mix your training in different states. Various states are still protecting their own training industries, and interpret and implement the rules differently. 2. However the UK and Ireland now have an agreement that they will accept each other's ATPL res...

Newtownards is very close to Belfast city, you are probably as well parking there. Remember flight plan required both ways as you are crossing the FIR boundary. PPR required by phone in advance for all. The restricted area is due to the former 'security' situation up north, plus it's very close to S...

In the UK, initial Class 1s can only be done at the CAA in Gatwick. Renewals can then be done with AMEs authorised to renew Class 1s. (Not all are). Which is very reasonable and another gap in the IAA system. In Ireland, your initial and then subsequent Class 1 renewals also have to be done in the m...

Well on an aviation website you're not likely to get help objecting to an aviation issue. However, have you considered the upsides? Your neighbor might be minded to take you on the occasional trip in the spirit of goodwill in return for tolerance of the pad. It's a unique experience seeing your hous...
