Testing of North Runway’s Instrument Landing System at Dublin Airport

August 17, 2021 Back to all news

We want to advise you about forthcoming activities on and around the North Runway site as part of the installation of the Instrument Landing System (ILS).

Flight calibration of the ILS will be undertaken during daylight hours from Monday, 23rd to Friday, 27th August, weather permitting.

The flights will involve a small twin-engine aircraft taking off and landing using the existing operational runways, not North Runway.  It will then make multiple approaches to both east and west ends of the North Runway site at no lower than a height of 100 feet, and then undertake several passes of the runway at c. 50 feet.

Please note that these flights are for testing and calibration purposes only and will not involve taking off or landing on the North Runway site.

If you have any queries or need clarification regarding above, please contact us at northrunway@daa.ie.
