There is always the apocryphal version full of Anglo-Saxon promise and always updated to ARAC edicts

Irish version cannot be expected until airspace pronounced safe from current Seismic and Tsunami activity

i phoned the iaa in february 2006 enquiring about the current map and they told me they will post me some maps because the new one will be out soon, (11 months ago) so i got a laminated and non laminated one from the iaa for FREE, i thought i would be scr**** up the wall for a map.

Just received news from the IAA today:

"we hope to have the new 1.500,000 charts in approximately 6 weeks we will also have a cheat 1.250,000 chart also."

Do you know is the 1 : 250 000 chart will only cover the Dublin CTR/CTA and surrounding airspace at Bal and Weston or is there plans to have two 1 : 250 000 charts covering the northern and southern part's of Ireland ?

A 1 : 250 000 chart of the dublin / North Leinster area is badly needed given the ammount and different types of airspace.

hello Ceatach,

Thank's for the reply. It's been over four year's since the last chart was released and a lot of changes have been made since then. I might just send an email to find out the details, if i get a reply i'll post it here.

Ok great stuff. It makes sense to do it that way instead of having lots of people emailing asking the same questions...

She may take a few days to get back to you. talk soon.
