    Information for Pilots:

    Freecall 123.450 for airfield information and joining instructions. Derryogue is an uncontrolled airport so all communications from the ground are for information purposes only, all manoeuvres are at pilot discretion. We will be as helpful as possible with setting up the circuit and assisting all aircraft on arrival and departure. Maintain a good visual awareness, the circuit can be very busy with up to 5 or 6 aircraft at any given time. Maintain good separation and do 'S' turns if necessary on the approach. Be aware aircraft may also be backtracking. Most aircraft will be arriving about 1300 local time.

    All circuits will be done to the WEST of the airfield. Left hand circuit if 01 is in use and right hand circuit if 19 is in use. On the aerial view attached below there are a few highlighted areas which we would like all pilots to avoid to create as little disruption for the neighbours as possible, this is gratefully appreciated.

    On the ground there will be marshallers to assist with parking.

    For departures and Go-Arounds we would ask that runway heading is maintained until 500ft AGL for noise abatement then make a left or right turnout as required.

    An alternative airfield is "Aughrim", which is 1.8 niles North of Derryogue landing on runway 35 only.

    Enjoy the fantastic the scenery the Mournes have to offer on the way!

    Information for everyone else:

    No drones under any circumstances.

    We ask that dogs are not brought to the day, as they can run into harms way and cause problems.

    Also aircraft can be dangerous and fragile. Never approach an aircraft that has a running engine, propellors can become invisible when turning. Please respect people's airplanes, do not touch any aircraft or any propellor, propellors can start without warning if moved. Do not cross the runway unless escorted at the designated crossing point.
