I accept that there should be no training, but The airfield has been there for years, so all the people in the houses knew or at least if they had done there research that there is a lisenced airfield becide them!!!!!
What conditions dose the airfiels have from a planning point?? ie is there a max number of movements in any time peroid etc??
I would just be conserned that some day soon, due to the lack of activity, someone will manage to get the lisence revoked due to not being used!!!!!!! and we dont want any less airfields!!!!!!
Its not ment in any bad way, but i just think at the moment its a waist of a facility, it could be amazing there given its location, and nearby facilitys!!!!! That along with the new Greystones marina could attract alot of investment in the area......
A very nice man, little activity unless you own a plane of your own, but, as of June 2006, the Irish Aero Club still was operating, if in a dormant, non-training capacity, because I did ask the question!
Newcastles a nice aerodrome, small, quiet, but nice as it is, also very vry soggy...
Most people I know from that part of the county fly or are involved in motor sports actually, so I would have expected it to come up at some stage, the idea of opening a new club, etc, to tell you the truth, the aerodrome wouldn't be the most practical for training, and private flying can happen just about anywhere these days...
