Is there anywhere to hire out a C42 back home?
Been signed off on one there a few weeks ago and was looking to hire one for a few months before considering purchasing a share in one.
Any help appreciated as always

Not sure if Raphael rents the C42's for solo hire, but a conversion would be on the cards before flying from the strip if he did.
Its a tricky strip for anyone not experienced, but its a fine place to master the skills.
Give Raphael a call and have a chat, wont hurt in any case....... All the best.
The C42 is a damn fine aircraft, owned one for a few years and have done bit over 1000 hours in them.... looking to replace again and no matter what I look at, none come close as an all-rounder.
Would like this, still a microlight and tops out at over 200mph, but tight in and out of 300 metres.
You already have a fantastic little plane. Just get the Flash 2 Alpha up and running again. Finish your conversion and you'll never look back. Do it before the end of February. No fun flying at 200 mph. A trip from Donegal to Kerry would be a local hop, you could take off at 9am and still be back home for lunch. You would be bored after only two months. A trip to Kerry from Donegal in the Flash 2 Alpha on the other hand would be a 3 day weekend away. The best weekends flying you could ever have. As Nike say, Just Do it.
Agree about Kernan Aviation, amazing place to visit. I trained there as well back in 2005. When you master flying in and out of the Top Field there is literally no airfield in Ireland that you will not be able to land into. Really tightens up your flying. I am sure a good few circuits from the bottom field and an hour ot two in and out of the top field would definately have you solo from there if your already qualified. Very good friendly and professional yet relaxed instructors. Definately worth a visit.
PILOTS are just PLANE people with a special AIR about them
