    Have you visited Kilrush recently? Let me answer that for you NO


    Hi YoYo,
    I don't need to visit Kilrush - I'm based there and have been for years. Like you I value factual accuracy - so let's look at the statements you dismiss so readily.

    1. I haven't seen anything from the IAA licensing Kilrush as a public airfield nor heard of any flight schools establishing there.
    2 & 3. The neighbours show no signs of incipient deafness, they continue to have animals and be noise sensitive.
    4. Runway 01/19 has been increasingly paved over the last few years since Ian got tired of trying to drain the dip by natural means, but was not anything like fully paved when I made the post back in October.
    5. Likewise the pilot's lounge (of which Ian is justifiably proud) is lovely, but again was just a building project when I made the post back in October.

    Tempora mutantur et nos mutamur in illos - don't be so dismissive.

    I visited Kilrush for the first time there recently and was very impressed with what I saw. It is a beautifully kept establishment, fair play to the owner/ manager. Lovely grounds and clubhouse.

    The hangars though, they looked a bit on the hectic side. I wouldn't fancy trying to get one of the inside planes out in a hurry! I'd say the hangar rash is serious there.
    Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast.

    Visited Kilrush today - new pilot lounge is fab... and the coffee machine most certainly earns Kilrush the 'best airfield coffee in Ireland' award :D

    With soft ground prevalent at most GA fields in Ireland this time of year, the tarmac runway at Kilrush means there is no excuse for not getting out flying and engaging in some hanger talk over great coffee!

    Well done guys... and thanks for the welcome and tour around the airfield Ken!

    Hey Mike Kilo, I heard the neighbours near Kilrush were complaining about the noise you made when you made a dash for the Hangar Jacks yesterday!!!

    Kilrush is a brilliant field and it can only get better. The new tarmac on RWY 19 is a great asset in wet conditions.
    Thanks to Ken Haslett for his hospitality and for the giuded tour of Kilrush and of his superb Zodiac, you certainly got me thinking of investing in one.

    Thanks guys for the Kilrush 'vote of confidence'

    Spread the word and don't forget you can always buy fuel at Kilrush. Within the next couple of weeks we will have electronic credit card facilities so there will be no excuse for heading back to Dublin with half tanks

    If anyone wants to make sure I'm on the field for fuel give me a ring on 086 3596089. Otherwise just call up on 123.425 when you are about 5 minutes out and listen in for any other traffic. We have quite a bit of chopper traffic using the avgas these days

    All welcome and the coffee is always hot

    When a flight is proceeding incredibly well, something was forgotten.

    I have been told today that the cost of hangarage has just been hiked up to crazy levels at Weston (?15K-plus for a light single).

    So where does this leave you, and the others in a similar situation at Weston Bearcat?
    We who fly do so for the love of flying. We are alive in the air with this miracle that lies in our hands and beneath our feet.

    I don't suppose anyone knows where someone could hanger a 172 within 50 miles of Dublin? :?:

    I am really looking to hanger it. Parking it is not such a problem.
