    Thanks. That is what I was thinking too. I was just a bit thrown by Dev's post. So from a mooring PoV the 200*30m ship would not be an issue and we can agree to disagree on the docking thing?

    We are talking at cross purposes. I am not talking about the dock. I am talking about the harbour basin. You keep talking about the dock.

    That is the dimensions of the dock - I am trying to tease out what would fit into the basin. Same beam but longer?

    I like the idea of reactivating the dock I must say though.

    You don't need side by side for basic training, the PC-9M seems to function well for ab initio training. I agree on forgetting the combat role though. A cheaper option would be the Grob G120TP

    realistically - for the air corps's own use - how many would we need? They strike me as too many. Mothball the rest for attrition.

    Alternatively get paid by Ryanair and Aer Linus for pilot training

    PC-9M

    What earthly role do they fulfill other than training pilots for Aer Lingus and Aer de Rien? I mean actually? How many would the Air Corps need for its own purposes?
