The IAA have published a revision to Aeronautical Notice A19 which includes French registered aircraft operating on Flight Permits. Such aircraft are welcome to visit Ireland for up to 28 days without any additional airworthiness documentation. This does not apply to gyrocopters or ex-military aircraft.
The requirement to have a valid pilot licence, acceptable for use in Ireland, still applies of course, as do all other customs requirements etc. It is anticipated that the French DGAC will reciprocate this and publish their own notice. We will inform members if/when this happens.
The full text of the Aeronautical Notice can be read HERE. If there are any French pilots wishing to visit Ireland and would like some advice on planning, customs, flight plans etc. please feel free to contact us at email@example.com
