2....more....days.....of work. Get through those without committing any major acts of violence is the plan.

Not much on the agenda. Eat plenty of foie gras. Some kayaking on the Vezere maybe. Other than that, turn off the phone and relax!

Has anyone had any experience of using tinydeal?

Seems to be one of the few options for ordering a P2

The train to cork seems like a strange pricing system. if you can use the "Semi Flexible" ticket at any time of the day, then why charge 50% more for certain times?

You're hired. My current crowd are taking pretty much that and it seems like money for old rope as they do fuck all for me.

Tiz only arriving on Sunday. Guy who was doing it for experience now wants money

Kerry and Cork are a bit of a disaster without an instrument rating tbh. Fog can roll in very quickly. Typical dispatch rates for the private licence are only around 50% moving to 90% with rating (probably higher in Ireland). I'll get it next year and then I hope to have no further aspirations to do anything difficult in my life because I'm tired.

There's one called an 'en-route instrument rating' which allows you to fly in cloud, use the airways and put the onus on ATC to keep you clear of restricted areas, but once you're close to the destination aerodrome you have to cancel 'instrument flight rules' and be clear of cloud and in sight of the surface but still be above a certain safety altitude. If the cloud base precludes that then it's a no go and if it happens inadvertently then it's a mayday (procedurally but not a huge threat). Same goes for the departure aerodrome. If you can't get above that altitude after takeoff without being in cloud you can't go. It's 15 hours of practical training and 100 hours of utterly pointless theory

The full IR allows landing in everything down to a 200 ft cloud base and taking off in close to zero visibility and its 50 hours practical and 250 hours theory. Procedural approaches are very difficult thus the extra training.

There's also a middle ground where you can have full IR privileges with just 45 hours training and 100 hours theory and the only limitation is you're restricted to non-commercial use.

The first and third form a joined up course too where you can do one then the other with the same theory and practical hours counting toward both, so I'll probably go that route and may not even add the third as most of my plan is flying in Europe in summer so weather shouldn't be too much of an issue, and if it is I won't be to out of joint if I just have to wait a day.

What kind of money would it cost if we were to hire someone out of Weston do the return trip on Wednesday for two or maybe four people?

Any chance anyone can recommend a little stereo (as in not a hifi, more boombox) that plays CDs, has DAB radio, and plays USBs? It's for my mother.

3 max. They would charge about €240 per flight hour at 120 mph.
