What's the story with landing on waterways in this country though? Do they have to be licensed landing areas?
It also depends on who owns the waterway or body of water concerned.You could have to deal with local councils, city councils, the ESB, Waterways Ireland, Fisheries Ireland, private angling clubs and so on.On some lakes which are reservoirs, you are not allowed to have a motorised watercraft of any size on the water and your seaplane / floatplane becomes that when it alights on water.I know of two active floatplanes, one in Sligo and one in Mullingar, whose owners are users of this forum and who will have the relevant gen.
