Link only gives hourly parking fees.

Guessing dhblewis is looking for annual parking fees, considering that there have been rumours of fees in excess of 10k for outside parking

That greater than 10k is a figure that was quoted for the hangar.... it was based on a square foot rate.

The last figure I know of was in the region of 2500 but that's not hangared parking.

I presume Daniel, if you get the the Bellanca Viking, you'll absolutely need hangarage. Would be shame to ruin those beautiful wooden wings. If you do buy it I'd love to see it. A rare beast in these parts.

I'm afraid I can't offer and real suggestions for hangarage. Your best bet is to peruse the local fields in Kevin Glynn's airfield guide and make a couple of calls.

Thnks fora all your advise. Would a Piper Arrow II need to be stored in a hanger?

I like the idea of weston as it is on a bus route.

dhblewis, ithe Arrow would be OK outside provided it's not left idle for too long letting condensation and moisture get the better of your instruments and the aircraft is well secured with good tie downs and proper control locks.

Loads of aircraft live outside in Ireland, so it's not a biggie. There are several arguements for and against a de-humidifier plugged inside for when it is parked up, but that'd be up to yourself.

Ohh, and re. your Signature, " Cessna 172 or Bellanca 17-31A " then it's a bit of a no brainer really, Bellanca all the way. Ohh, and as OnTheNumbers says, if you do get a bellanca, make sure it's hangared.

Unless its on a national bus route and they normally only stop and
pick up in the towns.
Even if there is a bus route you would have at least half a mile
of a walk to the airstrip from the main road.

The walk would be worth it dont ya think??? :D

I'm pretty sure Bus Eireann go past on the Athy/Clonmel route,
I'm sure the driver would let ya jump out at Kilrush :D
They go from Dub to Athy about 6 times a day if i can remember 8)

If one did pass the airfield most drivers are sound enough to let you off between pick up points, again it's all dependant on whether one passes close to the airfield and what driver you get. Bus Eireann website might be your man.

Once you find the difference in costs it might not seem that bad to have it closer in Weston for sake of time, convenience and facilities.

dhblewis,

I notice you're in Dalkey. If you're thinking of getting an aircraft and some hangerage, it might be worth your shot getting in touch with Eric Hopkins of Newcastle (EINC), Co. Wicklow. Activity is very very scarce at EINC and Im not even sure if the runway is useable anymore (it certainly isnt until next March at least to my knowledge) but if you're going to be investing in an aircraft its no harm to ring around various airfields around Dublin.
