I think it was Shay Given's red R44 that was in Cork yesterday. G-IVEN, but I'm not sure if he flys it himself.

Hey,

It's not that they cant afford to use the likes of A109's
and EC135's, The R44 are suppose to be briliant to start off in...
It's all about experience and progress in the end that makes
you a good pilot...
You never start off you flying training with a jet in a plane!!
Unless you join the Sweedish Airforce :D
You start in small jets there....
Regards,
M747
:D

True, and there's that old saying, " A fool and his money are soon flying more airplane than he can handle ".
