Hire car from Sixt about 0.5 mile walk away. This is really the only flying school in Northern Ireland. Relatively active and busy. Just a few miles south of Belfast so can share the METAR weather reports from Belfast City airport. Three runways but no take-offs from 26. No instrument approaches so let down over the water (lough) heading north if conditions permit or divert to Aldergrove if they don't. In addition to GAR forms there are also landing/departure forms per passenger to fill in on arrival.
