I suggest the IAA contact Airtricity who are the main operators of these, in that it is from windfarms they contribute to the National Grid. If the IAA are only compiling a list of these now it could take a significant amount of time to identify and mark all of these. I suggest they concentrate on farms within say 20 miles of an airport or airfield and those near major National Primary and Motorway routes. A good example are those a couple of miles S/SW of Birr.

See the attached link which shows a map. Interestingly it does not show the ones at Birr or near Toomevarra in Tipperary. There may be other developers building them apart from Airtricity. Anyone know?

It is intended that the IAA will display the final drafts of these charts at state and regional airports, and in the licensing office in Aviation House just prior to publishing. This will allow for comments and observations before printing!

The current timeframe for this is to display the drafts within the next month. They will be on display for a couple of weeks and assuming no major problems are discovered they will be published in a 2-3 month timeframe (from 23/04/07).


now where is my magnifying glass and fine tooth comb :lol: :lol: :lol:

we've waited long enough i think :roll:

I think the reason for the IAA being so cautious is because of the fiasco when they issued the last chart - the one prior to the current one. Anyone remember that!

I wonder will there be two 1/4 mill charts, i.e. one for the southern part of the country and one for the northern part.

Or will it just cover the greater Dublin area :?:

Probably the 2 1/4mills. There used to be 1/4 mills before.... in fact as a kid I think I was given 2 of them which I may still. Must dig them out and see how things have changed.

Mike C, you're probably better off having gotten the Jeppy.... it sounds like the IAA charts won't be out for another few months anyway. Perhaps longer if someone finds mistakes during the consultation/preview process.

Why don't they just bring the damn chart out, and amend it every couple of months? They could treat it as a 'work in progress' rather than a definitive chart which should be eternally correct and without fault. Like the AIP!
