Increadable they flew with ALL the restrictions!, just goes to show there IF its the Ash from the volcanoe its still out there in the air!click here
No restrictions on private aircrafts. Looks like an unfortunate accident that's caused two people to sadly lose their lives.
Private aircraft owners are strongly advised by the Civil Aviation Authority not to fly due to volcanic ash, however no legal restrictions are in force.I think the Civil Aviation Authority better get its act together very quickly and enforce laws now before any more mishaps take palce
because they generally fly much lower than commercial flights, and the ash cloud is at a relatively high altitude.
The abrasion of the dust is unlikely to be a severe problem for the flying surfaces at the lower speeds and altitudes of light aircraft.If it was piston engined there would also be no significant abrasion in the engine, and the dust is so fine it would be unlikely to choke the fuel feed.This aircraft was probably flying lower and and maybe even slower (airspeed) than traffic on the A9.
If piston engiges were affected, there wouldn't be many cars running at the mo!
Some cars are affected.Mine is covered in a beige crud which came down with the rain this morning!
