Biannual Testing of Dublin Airport’s Instrument Landing Systems

April 4, 2023 Back to all news

We want to advise you about upcoming flight checks which will take place as part of Dublin Airport’s mandatory Instrument Landing Systems (ILS) biannual checks.

Subject to weather conditions, the flight checks will take place on two consecutive nights between 11pm and 4.30am from Tuesday, April 4 to Wednesday, April 5 2023.

The flights will be undertaken by a small twin-engine aircraft which will make multiple approaches to each end of the North Runway 10L/28R, the Crosswind Runway 16/34 and the South Runway 10R/28L and at no lower than a height of 100 feet, and then undertake several passes of the runways at c. 50 feet.

daa is required to facilitate these flight checks in order to comply with EASA (European Aviation Safety Authority) regulations, as directed by the IAA (Irish Aviation Authority).  The next mandatory biannual flight checks will take place around October 2023.
