    The pilot training journey

    Training to be a pilot is a unique learning experience, which is character-building, complex, and challenging. The training demands high levels of self-discipline and determination, across a variety of physiological and practical skill-sets. But success will reward those who meet the required high standards, with a well-respected, exciting and fulfilling career.

    Ask any professional pilot and they will tell you… despite the early morning starts in the depths of winter, delayed flight schedules and irregular work patterns, they would not change their career for any other.

    By visiting this website you could have already made the first step to becoming a pilot. Take the next step and book your tickets now. Make it part of your checklist!

    Who should attend?

    • Anyone with an ambition to be an airline or military pilot.
    • Anyone currently in education with an aspiration to be a professional pilot.
    • Career change? If you are considering a career in the skies and want to know where to start, Pilot Careers Live is a ‘must attend’ event.
    • Military pilots leaving the service, now considering a new career with the airlines.
    • School/College Career Advisors – An opportunity to gather reference material about the career.
    • Those interested in commercial helicopter flying opportunities.

    You do not need to be an expert on pilot training to attend. The exhibition will equip you with enough knowledge about the pilot training process, ensuring you get the best possible, independent advice at the start of your career.

    Tipperary Racecourse

    Tipperary Vintage Rally and Family Fun Day.

    March 26th/27th 2016

    DSC_8083

    This Easter once again sees the Tipperary Vintage and Family Day go ahead at Tipperary Racecourse with what is expected to be one of the biggest turnouts of classic and vintage cars, tractors bikes and trucks in the events history. Bolstered by last year's record attendance of exhibits the organisers are extending the display area to ensure that all can be comfortably accommodated in the racecourse grounds.

    In addition to the fine collection of cherished machines there will be a display of army vehicles, a dog show, aerobatic display, large autojumble, children's activities, trade stands, and much else besides, with all the money raised going directly to South Tipperary Hospice. The show has raised over €100,000 during the years it has been running which has brought an enormous amount of relief and comfort to those who have suffered grave illness and their families.

    The Saturday before the main event is now widely recognised as a bikers day with a Honda Fifty run starting off at 4pm and a supper to follow upon their return. Bikes of all types and age are welcome to take part in this activity which kicks off the riding season with an excellent money raising activity.

    In addition to the older vehicles there is a growing number of modified cars attending which is a class of exhibit that is becoming ever more popular. The time and expense that goes into preparing many of these vehicles is worthy of recognition and anyone with a well specified car is more than welcome to bring it along and show it to a wider audience.

    On a final note the organisers would like to reassure all their regular visitors and exhibitors that although they can no longer describe the weekend as a rally from 2017 onwards the event will continue in the same style and format well into the future.

    For further details please contact Steve Thornton on 087 7579358 or Jack Leonard on 0862716931

    RAeS Lecture: “Drones: Aviation’s Wild Child” – 20APR/WE from Paul Gorey

     

    SPEAKER:       Mr Mark Prendergast

                            IAA RPAS/Drone Examiner & Flight Instructor/Aer Lingus A330 Pilot

                            RPAS = Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems

    TITLE:              "Drones: Aviation's Wild Child “

     

    DATE:              Wednesday 20th April 2016 at 8pm 

     

    VENUE:             Abbey Room, Wynn’s Hotel Lower Abbey Street, Dublin 1.

     

    SYNOPSIS:

    In addition to being a drone enthusiast and drone service entrepreneur, Mark is an RPAS Flight Examiner with the IAA and Chief RPAS Instructor at RPAS Training International (www.rti.ie). His RPAS regulatory knowledge sees him working on RPAS Working Groups at a national level with the IALPA Safety & Technical Committee and at the European level with the European Cockpit Association (ECA). Having honed his skills as a pilot instructor in the Irish Air Corps he now flies commercial long haul with Aer Lingus.

     

    Drones are the current tech fad and their potential seem limited only by imagination. Consumer and commercial users are ramping up their adoption of drones while big business and research funding is starting to pour in. But who are these drone operators and where do they come from? In this presentation Mark will introduce drones and look at what they do, how they fly and what if any the impact on the traditional manned aviation sector will be.
