You are all very welcome to our annual fly in BBQ. Last year we had 80+ aircraft from all over the U.K. and Ireland visiting. For folks travelling from mainland U.K. we can help arrange transport and accommodation if required! The airfield has now been extended to 790m of good grass. Aim to arrive between 12-2pm, but obviously we can accommodate early or late arrivals. Perhaps make a weekend of flying in Ireland! Hope to see you there!
Airfield details are as follows: N: 54.03.041 W: 006.01.786
Dimensions 790m x 12m grass
Airfield Elevation: 68 ft amsl
Frequency: 123.45 Mhz

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 miles 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: 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.

Sun12Jul2020Cobh Harbour, Co. Cork
Plans have been unveiled for the inaugural Cobh Air Spectacular, which promises to be the largest air show ever seen in the history of Cork Harbour.
Dozens of aircraft, including the Aero Superbatics Wing Walkers and the Strike Masters jet display teams, have already confirmed for the event on July 12th, 2020. Some of Ireland’s most skilled aerobatic pilots have also committed to the event which is expected to draw up to 100,000 to vantage points across Cobh and the lower harbour.
Organisers are promising single engine aerobatics, historical aircraft flypasts and displays from the Irish Coastguard and RNLI. The event has been timed to coincide with Cork 300, which celebrates three centuries of activity at the Royal Cork Yacht Club.
Event Organiser Captain Rich MacIlwraith says the Cobh Air Spectacular represents the culmination of years of planning; “Having been involved with airshows around the world, I have always believed that Cork Harbour provides the best natural backdrop for an event of this kind. We have already attracted an amazing line-up, with more announcements to come. This event will be unlike anything we have ever seen on the south coast, and marks a huge opportunity to establish Cobh and the lower harbour as a regular venue for a world class airshow”.
