Welcome to the website of ILAS, the Irish Light Aviation Society.
ILAS represents pilots and builders/restorers of light aircraft that operate under a 'permit to fly'.
Our members build their own aircraft from kits or plans and restore classic and vintage aircraft. They fly their aircraft across Ireland and tour overseas. They also engage in Aerobatics.
ILAS operates a system of initial and ongoing airworthiness inspection for our fleet as well as supervising homebuild and restoration projects, under a delegation from the Irish Aviation Authority
"ILAS field" is the airfield operated by ILAS at Taghmon, County Wexford. There is a clubhouse at the field, where the kettle is never far from the boil. All are welcome to visit with prior permission from the Airfield Co-ordinator Aidan Power on 087 676 5207 and firstname.lastname@example.org
Permit aviation is the gateway to lower cost flying. The key feature is that the pilot/owner of permit type aircraft takes full legal responsibility for the airworthiness of their aircraft and in return can do far more of their own maintenance, even building the aircraft from scratch or restoring an un-airworthy aircraft.
Published quarterly, the ILAS Newsletter is a compendium of the latest news, trip reports, project reports and technical articles.
