I like! Where can you do that? (other than join army)

EPPO, EPPK

AFAIK it is not possible anywhere now.

It was possible years ago, in Europe.

Obviously not solo

2016:

  • Fly more trips
  • Get the FAA piggy back license
  • Night qualification
  • Fly the Hudson tour, possibly at night
  • Fly more C182 to become more current
  • Fly to LOWZ to open the skiing season (yes, it’s time to start talking about this again! )
  • End of the year, probably in 2017: Flying trip from Florida to the Bahamas

Generally:

  • Fly more trips, fly longer trips
  • Get my a* up and start the E-IR, then CB-IR
  • Fly further into Africa (to Morocco and back in May was a good start)
  • Tour Scandinavia
  • Fly to Minsk
Essen-Mülheim (EDLE), Düsseldorf (EDDL), Paderborn (EDLP), Mönchengladbach (EDLN), Germany

SET, Meridien or TBM

I fancy an MCR-4S. Just not sure if I’ll be able to import one built by someone else, onto the Irish register. Can’t keep it on a foreign reg, as it can only stay here for 30 days at a time. A problem to worry about in a few years. I recon it’s 6-8 years away still before I can worry about that problem ;)

To own an aircraft that can carry 3 people + bags, does 120Kts and that is cheap enough to run that I can afford to fly it without having to worry about the costs.

Airplanes which can do what you want start fairly cheap and are not really that expensive to keep. Seeing that the MCR’s start at 60-70k these days with newer models up to 120k, I’d think you can get a capable 4 seat tourer which can do a lot more than 120 kts for less than half that and spend the rest flying it

stay healthy and fit and eventually get the bus pass

I had a look at the webpage. English is a language full of difficulties
Apply for an older person’s bus pass
Why older instead of old? Is older a kind way to say old? Or is it just another piece of bureaucratic jargon?

“Old” has a derogatory meaning in modern English – same as “housewife” and much else. The UK is full of this politically correct crap
