ILAS NMOM, Version 2.2
A revised version of the ILAS NMOM, Version 2.2, was approved by the IAA on 20/12/2017. This version of the NMOM, a summary of the changes involved from Version 2.1 and the associated forms have been published on the Members-Only Download section of the ilas.ie website.
As previously notified, the ILAS Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Sunday Jan 28, 2018 at Weston Aerodrome at 12:00. The time and location have again been chosen to facilitate members who wish to fly in - weather permitting. Membership subs for 2018 may be paid at the venue before or after the AGM. Online payment is preferred, but if you are paying by cash/cheque, it would greatly facilitate matters if you bring the cash/cheque in an (open) envelope with the amount enclosed written on the outside, along with the names of the memberships and the year(s) being covered by this amount.
ILAS Membership cards with ID photo are only printed on request. Could any member who wishes to get a 2018 membership card at the AGM (on payment of the 2018 subs of course) please email firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week beforehand, please?
ILAS field is currently closed, but unlike previous years there is no standing water, so a short run of dry days should help hugely. The Clubhouse has been repaired.
Permit Extensions have been granted for EI-DDD, EI-FNE, and EI-ANY, while a Permit Renewal has been granted by the IAA for EI-DUL.
There is a VFR Chart Workshop arranged for Thursday January 18 in the IAA HQ. If you are aware of any anomalies, issues, inaccuracies or gaps in the current charts, could you please email Peter Tawse (email@example.com) and VFRcharts@iaa.ie. The aim is to have a new edition of the chart by April 2018.
Work is continuing apace on a new ILAS website that will inter alia incorporate membership application, update and renewal functions. The new website will be launched by the Chairman at the forthcoming AGM.
