    Irish Pilot Mags

    by junglebob » Wed Nov 21, 2007 9:58 am

    Would anyone know of the list of Irish Pilot Mags around? I know (obviously) of Flying in Ireland but I'm not sure what else there is and I was asked this by someone to find out. Anyone have a list or anything??

    Other than Flying in Ireland I don't know of any others. I regularly buy some of the UK Aviation magazines such as Pilot, Todays pilot and Flyer. If your a Pilot and fly yourself I find the articles in these magazines very informative and I always learn something from them. Other than that I have never seen any Irish Mags.

    Yeah, thats what I thought.
    So in-light of that, would anyone also have a list of the UK pilot mags available in Ireland by any chance?
    I know of Go Flying and FTN, well I read them myself anyway!

    There are rakes of them in Easons, alot of hobbyist model mags too. Todays Pilot and Flyer are pretty good.

    There are no Irish pilot magazines. Flying in Ireland being the nearest thing. The only other magazine is 'Irish Air Letter'. Which is essentially a spotters mag printed on plain sheets held together with a staple. Nevertheless it had one or two good articles. I used to subscribe but am not even sure if it's still published. The aviation society of Ireland had a mag for a while but that seems to have ceased publication.

    The 'Irish Air Letter' is still published and as Buzz say's it's a specialist mag aimed at spotters. It's only available on subscription from:
    The Editor, Irish Air Letter, 20 Kempton Way, Dublin 7, Ireland. Or
    ial.magazine@upcmail.ie

    Irish Air Letter is the monthly journal of current and historical Irish aviation and not essentially a"spotters mag". It publishes highly accurate and excellently researched articles by a dedicated team. It does have a section of aircraft movements for those interested. Please do not dismiss it as a spotters magazine.

    Duly noted. Really I should have said it's an aviation enthusiasts magazine. The only reason I let my subscription lapse was because of a moving house etc. I would recommend it. I always looked forward to my copy. Thinking about I might just resubscribe.
