David McGuire Now licenced to fly in Ireland

Mon, Aug 30, 2021

David McGuire was the holder of lapsed Australian and New Zealand Sports aviation licences but needed a current and valid licence in order to fly in Ireland. Fortunately the BMAA’s Aaron Bliss was able to advise David on the requirements to convert lapsed foreign licences into a current NPPL (M) and on 31st August David fulfilled the conversion requirements when he completed the Navigation exercises and passed his GST in Thruster G CGFZ. David has already brought his old Airbourne Flexwing back from New Zealand and has just bought a Danish registered Foxbat. In addition David has built his own little Airstrip next to his home in Galway. If Aaron is as fast and efficient in processing David’s licence application as he was in providing the Licence conversion requirements David will be flying from his own runway next week. Congratulations David on passing your GST.

Congratulations Dimitar on your First Solo flight and thanks for helping us keep our supplies moving.

17 year old The Anh Loughran gains his Pilot's Licence

Wed, Aug 18, 2021

The Anh Loughran was awarded the BMAA James Nichols Memorial Bursary earlier this year and quickly progressed by going solo in under 9 hours and then on 19th August 2021 passing his GST in Thruster G CGFZ. Unfortunately The Anh has been unable to take his car driving test due to a horrendous backlog of learner drivers and a shortage of Examiners, so, The Anh is now pacing out his school’s playing fields to see if they are long enough for him to fly to school in September to start his A level studies. Congratulations The Anh. James Nichols would have been proud of your achievement

First Solo flight for 16 year old.

Wed, Jun 30, 2021

SOLO AT 16. The Anh (Tiang) Loughran started taking flying lessons after lockdown ended in mid May and has progressed rapidly to the point where he did his First Solo flight on 1st July after less than 9 hours under instruction. The Anh has already passed his Air Law and Aircraft Technical exams and is well on the way to having his own Pilot’s License at the age of 17. Congratulations on your First Solo The Anh.

Testimonials

Hi Ken,

I hope you’re keeping well!

Just wanted to let you know you can add one more to the list of Fast Jet pilots you have trained! Out of 19 students being streamed after elementary flying training, 6 of us were selected for fast jet! I definitely wouldn’t have been in that top 6 without the training you gave me back home, so many thanks once again! Still plenty of work ahead but glad it’s going in the direction I wanted!

I don’t start my next stage of training until the summer so going to put my NPPL to good use with the RAF Microlight Association in the meantime!

Cheers

Ross
