    Hi OTN,
    that was me, alright :D ...you're off terra firma a lot quicker than if you'd bought a kit, you'll get plenty of first-hand experience running your aircraft and you can always build or restore later on in life

    Well I should be off terra ferma in the next few weeks, Stovepipe - Permit to Test arrived Friday. Thank for the good advice and I'm sure you'll see me around this summer.

    Hi all,
    With effect from tonight, the Society has been renamed the Irish Light Aviation Society (ILAS), following the merger of SAAC and CAACI.

    It still sounds a little funny when you say it as a word but it's better than saying SAAC. Congratulations to both organisations.

    What would you say are the significant benefits/changes brought by the recent merger.

    As a classic owner, I probably should be joining.

    Regards,

    Great stuff, good progress for SAAC/CAACI.

    So the big question, do we still call it the SAAC Fly-in

    i had hoped that the new name would have been Homebuilt, Aerobatic, Vintage Owners Club but then maybe it would not have given the right image.

    Hi all,
    OTN, I guess, at first, a simplification of the Permit process and a bigger voice. No point in being on the G-reg if you have a useful organisation here already....Can't hurt, really......Cubpilot, you had your chance to put in a name, already;)
    the Fly-In is on the 3/4th July with the following weekend as a back-up.

    Hi Stovepipe, if I can get my Luscombe training in the bag, I definitely try and make that fly-in.

    Are the combined meetings in Juggy's Well? Is there going to be a new website?

    Hi there,
    No joy on the website yet. I've drafted a new set of Permit documents, which are under approval at the moment. I'm also generating a joint Procedures manual, which will be ready shortly.
