New Procedures at Kernan Valley

Over the new year, Kernan Aviation based at Tandragee, Co. Armagh, have made some important changes to their operational procedures for pilots. The airfield is popular with visiting pilots as well as being an active club for flight training. All visitors are asked to take note of the new changes which include:

  • A new frequency which is now 118.085 callsign “Tandragee Radio”
  • Runways are 17/35
  • Kernan is STRICTLY PPR and all visiting pilots should contact Kernan for PPR before arrival.
  • Pilots should pay careful attention to the noise abatement and no fly areas on the airfield plates (below). We are a responsible airfield, and mindful of our location in the local community, so ask that pilots stick strictly to the outlined procedures.
