As there is no "D" airspace in the shannon FIR, the IAA can breath a sigh of relief. We couldn't have that sort of thing in Ireland! Or have I missed the point?aviatorsguide wrote:Part-SERA is expected to come into force on 4 December 2012 (albeit with a transition period enabled until 4 December 2014). This Regulation will allow Member States to decide whether to allow aircraft to fly under VFR at night and it is anticipated that all European States will choose to follow this route as most already do.
What's the chances of Ireland allowing it? Fat chance, slim chance, not a chance, no chance or are you even a chancer for asking about it?
As AG says....the FIR boundary is clearly marked on the chart. Inside that there is no VFR at night. Special VFR at night is only available in Control Zones. Not CTA's or any other form of controlled airspace but Control Zones only (CTR). They too are marked on the map, but none of them touch an FIR boundary.JFH wrote:If you departed the UK at night, in say your Cessna bug-smasher 150, and plodded on westwards over the Irish sea in the dark ; When would you actually fly into the Irish "NO FLY AT NIGHT" boundary that is in class G airspace if you are operating VFR?
The same too, but let's say I take off from my hypothetically owned super yacht anchored a couple dozen miles of the Irish west coast and I wanted to fly my Jet Ranger, VFR; that I have parked on my yacht's heli-deck into Ireland for a night out.
Where is the "NO FLY AT NIGHT" line drawn there? I can't see it drawn on any maps...
