Hi JFH,

Im just gone 17 and fly out of EIWT. I made my first solo a week after my 16 birthday and I am now nearing my flight test. Unfortunately I am not eligible for the Air Corps due to eyesight( i wear glasses when flying). I would strongly recommend you take some sort of a medical to avoid any possible disappointment. However, there are tons of other options in flying other than the Air Corps if it doesnt work out. Best of luck anyway in what ever you decide to do. :lol: :lol:

Careful, Careful

I fear nothing can be logged until age 15 - and it ain't retrospective - i.e. you can't save up what you flew at 13 and 14 to log when you turn 15!

Hey JFH

I'm 17 today woo hoo!! I'm nearly ready to get my PPL i hope, not much longer anyway - i have over 60 hours so the bank balance is hoping I'm ready for a test soon anyway!! I flew to Cork today, just dual though but it was fun. It was great flying on my birthday, the best thing being the surprise party on my return to waterford, courtesy of the aero club - thanx a million guys you really are the best!!!! :D :o :lol:

There are a lot of young irish people interested in flying at the moment, i think it's great to have so many people of my own age with the same passion for flying that i have!! good for when the conversation topics dry up anyway.
good luck with all your plans, you'll be surprised how quickly you feel at home in an aeroplane!!! but do get a medical done, it would be a major waste of money if you found out you couldn't fly because of some medical problem.

good luck with everything anyway i hope the air corps thing works out for you.

Hi JFH,

I'm 14, club member at Waterford Aero Club ( http://www.waterfordaeroclub.com ).

Any hours i've paid for i cannot log but that will all change on the 6th when I can log :D

Hopin to go commercial but would really prefer to become a display pilot or even a bush pilot.

Right lads,

The owner of Atlantic Flight training in cork, (not going to mention names) rang up the IAA, because i was flying at 14 and had around 15 hours flown. We were told by a person before that I could not log, the club was convinced I COULD log them. So i stopped logging them, the owner of A.F.T called up the IAA, spoke to Kevin Swords (head fella i think) and you ARE OFFICIALLY allowed log hours under 15. IT DOES NOT state anywhere in the JAA or JAR i dunno which , flying requirements anything about this age restriction, all it says is you HAVE to be 16 to go solo and to hold a SPL.

so colm, you can log your hours, and so can you brian.

Maurice is right yet again.

JAR-FCL 1.085 (a) states:

?A student pilot shall meet requirements specified by the Authority in the State in which the student intends to train.?

To this end Article 5 paragraph 5(a) of SI 333 of 2000 (The Personnel Licensing Order) states:

?A person undergoing dual instruction for the purpose of obtaining a student pilot's licence shall be not less than 15 years of age and shall be not less than 16 years of age before undertaking an initial solo flight.?

This is the law of the land. It cannot be rescinded by a telephone call.

There is nothing to say you can't log the hours. You just can't use them as the required hours for a rating or certificate.

Xacto- I could contradict you and say that it is the PPL I am logging for even though I will get the spl beforehand. What the IAA says what goes I suppose!

Nanoq- That would make sense.

Righteo so I will start logging hours
