Vmax pretty much has it. There can only be one PIC, and you can't be it unless rated on the machine, and actually in command. Can only log P2 if the machine is multi crew rated and so are you. Can only log PIC/US if under the supervision of an instructor/examiner while on an approved course with an ...

The 300 definitely has a real cockpit, however the R22 will go faster. Also, bear in mind that there are more R22s available for self fly than 300s. If you can afford it, training in the 44 might be the way to go!?

As far as I know, each state compiles its own exam papers, using the master JAA question bank. There are no national question banks as such. Some states may have their own preferences on the type of thing that they want to see in their own exam papers, leading to more questions from one section or a...

How do the IAA sanction the Helicopters flying directly over the crowd to the static area at Salthill for the airshow. I attended the airshow for the first time this year and was amazed to see a 40 year old single engined Helicopter from the Air Cor flying no more than 100ft on its final approach. ...

With the landowner's permission and if it is safe to do so, yes you can land anywhere.

I wonder how the park and ride facility will impact on a/c movement? Will the runway be used for parking? Might have more of an effect than heli movements.

Laura, You are required to say the full callsign until ATC permit you to do otherwise. You don't have discretion to change this even if you think you are helping out the controller. Which is not to say it doesn't go on a lot anyway. Having trained for PPL at Weston I struggle to remember to do the E...

Some operations that do self fly hire have a requirement, from their insurers, that you must do 5 hours dual time with an instructor before you can self fly hire. From reading these bords it looks like another major school at Weston has that policy. I've heard nothing but good things about Flightwis...

You have to understand what it is you want to be able to do. If it's to work for reward (i.e. pay) then you need a professional IAA, CAA or more likely these days JAA licence. HAI allow you to do a UK JAA course through the UK system albeit in the US, taking advantage of the cheaper rates in the US....

Horses for courses. Dragon?s course has a good reputation, or if you were to go the ATPL route, bristol have an excellent reputation also. I went the Bristol route, can?t fault it. An integrated course is a better way to do it, for some people. Personally if circumstances allowed, I?d go the HAI rou...

I would think it's more to do with a CAA requirement that you are signed off as having completed the ground instruction under the supervision of the school and ready for the exams. Though that may not be the case any more. It certainly is with the IAA, or was when I did the IAA PPL exams.

Newtownards, Enniskillen, any of the schools in NI I presume. Give one of them a call. However I'm not sure you could come in off the street and sit them. You could also get your RT operators licence which is a separate practical exam under the UK system.

Weston Availability Durying Ryder Cup?

I see as part of the news (Yesterdays Sunday Independent or Times I think) that Bus Eireann got the contract for transportation at the Ryder Cup, Weston is going to be used as a park and ride location. Will it be available for general aviation use also then? Anyone know what will happen? (Could we n...

Landing site Limerick/Killaloe area

I'm picking up some mates down that direction soon, we're going off on a jolly, one of those oft promised trips that I'm only getting around to now. Is there a heli friendly site that I might land to pick up and drop off later on? Willing to contribute a bottle of something if a private site, or get...
