Pilot Shops in dublin??

Post by EiMPB »

Can anyone tell me where (if there are any??) I can find a pilot shop in dublin. I need to get myself a headset, but haven't got a credit card I can use to get it over the web!!

Thanks in advance lads!!

Sorry unable to help with the headset but a little bit of advice.

Get yourself a credit card

All of my flight training was 'Sponsored' by Visa, Mastercard and American Express.

It costs a bit, but at least you get to fly a lot.

I nearly have it all paid off, and when it is, guess what I'll be doing with my credit cards?

I've applied to the bank for the credit card, and it should be approved soon!! Like you I'm planning on paying for my training with it!!!

Does anyone know if Transair in the Uk are good value??

Thanks

Thw worst possible thing you could do is paying for your lessons by credit card and then paying off the bill
on the drip. Have you studied the interest rates ?

Just get a car/college/whatever loan, much cheaper than a lousy credit card. Credit cards are only useful if you pay them off monthly and NEVER pay interest.

BOI have zero interest for 3rd level student credit cards and there is also no transaction fee's. This is no good if your not a student doe!

Hi Marc,
Ok here's where I can help!-
As far as I know there are no city centre pilot shops in Dublin- but if you visit Weston Airport, Eirecopter have a good pilot shop, and I think The National Flight Centre have a decent one too-

Other than that- phone 11850 or 11811, and ask there! It Does Cost Money Though! :(
