not sure if this would be a practical option for most people. flight schools tend to draw most of their students from within a hour's drive ,give or take a few minutes, of the airfield.
for students wishing to fly a couple of times a week it wouldn't be practical nor economic to have to be trawling half way across the country.
remeber it's a 2hr 30 minute drive there and back to waterford from dublin depending what part of the city and what time of the day you travel at.
i don't think people have 7 - 8 hours to spare especially during the week. when i was doing my ppl a couple of years ago at weston i was able to do my lesson's in the evening after work as the weeekends at weston are always bussy and trying to get an aircraft was never easy.
what made that possible is that weston is only about a 45 minute drive from navan.
