    The "Third Tuesday" gatherings are organised independently of ILAS but are attended overwhelmingly by ILAS members. interested particularly in homebuilding aircraft or restoring old aircraft.  For this reason, ILAS lists and promotes the events to its members.

    The events are run as an 'open house'  on the third Tuesday of each month.  They are very informal and, where there is a formal programme, it tends to focus on some aspect of  building/restoring/maintaining an aircraft rather than flying.

    The initiator and organiser of the events is Terry Coughlan and he can be contacted by email on terry@watermarkeng.ie

    There was never a more important time to pay attention to aviation policy.

     Julian Scarfe is a Technical Coordinator with Europe Air Sports and an expert on EASA affairs and closely monitors developments on behalf of varied general aviation interests across Europe.

    Julian will reflect on the next stages following the completion of the new EASA Basic Regulation and how permit aviation will be effected by the changes.  His views on how small permit associations such as ours can 'punch above our weight' in seeking to influence the implementing rules that will give effect to the new BR.

    The possible departure of Britain from EASA is another hot topic exercising our minds at present and once again, Julian is well placed to provide informed speculation as to the effects and how it can be handled.

    Established in 1988 as a non-profit organisation, Europe Air Sports goal mission is to represent the interests of pilots and light aircraft owners / operators in civil aviation regulatory developments.

    EAS supports a European regulatory environment that is proportionate to the complexity of aircraft and the nature of flight operation. A minimal amount of regulation to ensure flight safety, access to airspace, free movement and efficient and cost-effective organisation for operations, are of paramount importance for air sports to survive and thrive

    ILAS is a member of EFLEVA at European level, which in turn is a member of EAS.
