Biannual Testing of Dublin’s ILS
The daa has issued an advisory notice about the 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 11 pm and 4 am from Tuesday, 18th October to Thursday, 20th 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.
The daa is required to facilitate these flight checks in order to comply with EASA regulations, as directed by the IAA (Irish Aviation Authority). The next mandatory biannual flight checks will take place in March/April 2023.
