  • Aircraft Designations/Names

    Are the PC-9s receiving a designation or name for Irish service? If not anyone got any suggestions? I'd rather have something other than PC-9s to call them.
    Actually did the IAC christen any of its planes with anything other than the commercial names?

    HS125-700 = Government Jet
    Gulfstream G3 = Government jet
    Gulfstream GIV = Government Jet
    Learjet = Ministerial Aircraft...(small Government jet)
    PBN Defender = Garda plane
    EC135 = New Garda Heli
    AS355 = Pigs that Fly....

      Avro 621 Trainer (1930) The Cow (it was underpowered)
      Avro 548 Trainer (1926) The Submarine ( it wouldn't climb)
      I have seen these quoted in pilots personal logbooks.

        The love for their planes is readily apparent in those last two names:p

        Seriously though I think some names need to be dreamt up and officially applied to let the aircraft stand out from other nations.Even Slovenia have decided on Swift for their PC9s.It just feels to me like there isn't much love or caring for thier aircraft:( (small violin plays mournfully in the background)

          CASA 212-Now that we ended SAR, why the hell do we still have this thing?

              Dammit, mixed up the number with something else. :D

              Marine protection-don't you need choppers for that? I mean like drug busts and the like. Unless the CASA also does a paratrooper drop role.

                The Casa is a maritime patrol aircraft,and actually made the dauphin redundant,and the USCG has selected them too...
