Written answers (Question to Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 315 to 318, inclusive, together.

Details about the registration and use of private aircraft is a matter, in the first instance, for the State's aviation regulator the Irish Aviation Authority, who I have asked to respond directly on the matters raised. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within ten working days.
