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 flights will take place between 11pm and 4am from Tuesday, 18 October to Thursday, 20 October 2022 (three nights), with one night allocated to each of the three runways.

The flights will be undertaken by a small twin-engine aircraft which will make multiple approaches to each end of North Runway 10L/28R, South Runway 10R/28L and Crosswind Runway 16/34 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 in March/April 2023.

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