    Flexwing Instructors in Southern Ireland.

    I have a friend from Wexford in Southern Ireland that wants to buy my Blade 912 but does not know of any Instructors in his area.
    I don't know I think.

    Iím pretty certain Rob mkeller at RM Aviation based in Beverly North Yorkshire has travelled to Southern Ireland a couple of years ago to do lessons, he is an examiner as well as an instructor

    Wexford has a large following of floppy wings. There is a group based at the end of the ILAS field runway, he should get in touch with them. Unfortunately Peter Tawse from the Wexford Flying club died in an accident a couple of weeks ago.

    I wish you success with the sale; it seems like your friend will have somewhere to fly.

    I fly a weightshift Microlight and I am based in Navan. I originally trained in Kernan Aviation in Tandragee and flew 3-Axis aircraft for a few years. I then converted over to Weightshift and did my weightshift training with Gerry Snodden in Newtownards. I know it's a long way to travel from Wexford to train. But I can recommend.

    Otherwise your friend could have a look at some flying Schools in France and Spain which train to the NPPL (M) rating. You could go over and do some intense training over a two week period.

    Cheers,

    Damien
