FII Article - Need some help!

Post by mark » Mon Sep 14, 2009 8:47 pm

Hi guys,

Ive written a brief article for the October issue of the magazine about flying in ireland. Our October issue will be distributed in the UK with Flyer magazine next month. The aim of it is to promote Ireland as a flying destination and to encourage UK pilots to visit our shores. The article I have written briefly gives some useful information for UK pilots coming to Ireland.

I'm looking for a few experienced aviators to critique it and offer advice/comments/changes. Anyone interested?

Regards,
Mark

No worries lad, i'd be happy enough to have a look over it if you want!
There is no problem so complex that it cannot simply be blamed on the pilot.

I'd love to have a look Mark. Please forward me a copy.

I am certainly no expert but I might be able to throw in a 2 cent or so. I think you have my address.
Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast.

Mark re your article - be aware that the Flyer crowd are very pedantic regarding forms etc so make sure everything is absolutely correct.

E.g. The "General Aviation Report" to be used should be the one marked GAR MAY09 V3.1 in the bottom right hand corner.

Use of AFPEX is pretty much obligatory now. It also works for filing plans from / within Ireland etc.

Just finished proof reading a number of BA & MA dissertations (and they all passed) so if I can be of any help do let me know. I'll be flying into Kilkenny on Sunday from White Waltham so f you are around perhaps I'll see you.

Mark,

I'm a UK based PPL (Biggin/Headcorn) and a member of Waterford Aero Club, where I do some occasional flying. Also a FII subscriber. Possibly the kind of person your article is aimed at.

If you send it to me, I'd be pleased to review it.


Regards,

Roger
