Hi all

More good news. The hard work is paying off. Below is an e-mail from Martin Purcell of the IAA.

All the best

Hello all.

Following a review of the temporary validation system in place for pilots of microlights since 2010 and aware of upcoming changes with the implementation of the Aircrew regulation, the Irish Aviation Authority has amended its Aeronautical Notice P21 - Acceptance of Flight Crew Licences.

In order to facilitate short-term visits, not to accommodate pilots that are resident in the State, Ireland will accept the use of a UK issued NPPL with a Simple Single Engine Aeroplane (SSEA), Self Launching Motor Glider (SLMG), or Microlight Class Rating for use in Ireland which meet the following criteria:

The licence holder is not a resident of Ireland; (Proof of residency such as a valid passport. UK DVLA drivers licence or National Insurance Certificate must be provided to the Irish Aviation Authority upon demand.)
The licence and ratings are valid for use in the UK;
The pilot holds the appropriate medical certification for the licence held;
The pilot has at least 50 hours experience in flying aircraft covered by the licence; (evidence of which must be provided to the Irish Aviation Authority upon demand or within 10 working days of being requested.)
The pilot is restricted to operation in Class G airspace unless in possession of a valid radio telephony rating and an English Language Proficiency of 4 or higher endorsed on the licence;
The licence shall not be used for the purposes of commercial air transport, commercial operations or aerial work. Additional privileges of the licence such as flight instruction, testing or display authorisation may not be used.
The licence is restricted to operation only in accordance with daytime Visual Flight Rules.
Any conditions, limitations and restrictions applicable on the licence which exceed those listed here shall also be observed.
The pilot shall have all required documents available for inspection when operating in the Republic of Ireland including suitable photographic identification document
The pilot is familiar with, and adheres to, the requirements detailed in Irish Air Law. See GAM 05-10 for details on the potential differences.
The pilot shall report any aviation related accident or serious incident to the Air Accident Investigation Unit (Contact details can be found at www.aaiu.ie) and also to the Air Accident Investigation Body of both the State of Issue of the licence holder and the State of Registry of the aircraft.

Holders of UK issued NPPLs who are resident in Ireland must comply with the requirements of GAM 06-10. Refer to Aeronautical Notice A19 for aircraft requirements.

The pilot must also comply with any other requirements in force by other agencies such as the Irish Customs and Revenue Service, the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service, An Garda Síochána, the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, etc.

It is hoped that this change combined with the recent changes to P19 will be welcomed by pilots wishing to visit Ireland from the UK.

The notice can be accessed at http://www.iaa.ie/index.jsp?p=93&n=97&a=225&pp=119&nn=329&lID=843
