What We're Talking About On EuroGA >>

A prebuy checklist for the 21st century European buyer

From votec first solo Tb20 9

Every good mechanic who knows the type should be able to do a basic mechanical and AD check competently.

But what about avionics? Most mechanics don’t fly, and know little about instruments.

Then you get the European stuff especially for IFR eg the AFMS required to legally fly GPS approaches. This is much more obscure and almost nobody (off EuroGA ) knows about it.

How about throwing together a checklist?

In short, the airport is OK for us to go there but it took a lot of negotiation.

The aeroclub, who originally said it’s fine, later said they don’t want to get involved. Also it took weeks to establish / re-establish contact with them. Finally, after weeks, we were able to establish contact with the airport administration itself.

Aviathor and StevenR have done a huge amount of work sorting this out.

Earlier, Dublinpilot produced this, and this was posted here some time ago.


  • aircraft type
  • aircraft registration
  • planned date/time of arrival and departure

Arrival Friday 6th May
Departure Monday 9th May

The main thread is here and if you go to the last post

and work backwards you will find the latest info.

C210_Flyer, if you still have a seat available in your transport to visit some decent caves/vineyards on Saturday 7 May - I am enthusiastic! This will be a no-fly day.
