Dublin Airspace to Remain Open on Christmas Day
General Aviation pilots are being warned that the Dublin Control Zone will remain as Class C Airspace this Christmas Day. This is the first time this has happened, usually the airspace reverts to Class G. Although there is no scheduled traffic on Christmas Day, the airspace will remain controlled and pilots must file a flight plan if they wish to fly in the zone. Pilots should contact Dublin Tower 118.600 MHz for entry clearance. The weather tomorrow is expected to be windy with two cold fronts to pass so it’s unlikely there will be much traffic.
B0946/17 – FLIGHT INFORMATION SERVICE IS AVAILABLE WITHIN THE DUBLIN CTA ON FREQUENCY 118.5. DUBLIN CTR WILL REMAIN AS CLASS C AIRSPACE. AIRCRAFT PLANNING TO ENTER THE DUBLIN CTR MUST FILE A FLIGHT PLAN AND CONTACT 118.6 FOR ENTRY CLEARANCE. 25 DEC 00:00 2017 UNTIL 25 DEC 23:59 2017. CREATED: 21 DEC 11:37 2017
