    i know quite a few people that I genuinely think whose actions were misrepresented, its view of the D.F is also skewered, but this is surely off the point.

    I know but it still gets it right a lot of the time, although it's satire section is actually less funny than an RTE production (well an RTE comedy department production)

    That's 'cause theirs arent overweight with piles of unecessary and out-of-date junk, I presume.

    At first I was against leasing helicopters, but the more I think about it is becoming a good idea. The government budgets yearly on a receipts and expenditure basis, so the cost of an asset such as helicopters immediatly hit that years budget rather than over the life of the asset. Leasing, while it would cost more in the long run, would only be a gradual hit over a number of years.

    C-Q, Isn't that slander? If it is the gentleman I believe you're refering to, his company didn't get the Trainer contract.

    The Twin Squirrel was also mooted as a Dauphin/Alouette replacement.
    Because eurocopters Irish agent plays golf with all the right people.

    The last time I suggested getting the Agusta 412 I was shot down for picking a heli that was too big.

    I belive that the guy who wrote that is in the IAC, and it is an Air Corps plan for replacing both types the D2 and the AIII, however that does not mean it will happen.
    It's all down to the fools in government.
