Air Traffic Control
Dublin Weston Airport is in Class “C” airspace, known as the “Weston Area of Responsibility” or AOR. During published opening hours, an Air Traffic Control Service is provided, (Freq 122.4), call sign “Weston Tower”.
Instructions and clearances are issued in accordance with Rule 27 of S.I. No: 72/2004 (Rules of the Air). Pilots are reminded, on first contact, to listen first before transmitting as the frequency can be busy especially at weekends during summer time.
A left circuit off RWY 25, or a right circuit of RWY 07, result in a penetration of the EIR15 (encroaching on the ILS Approach to runway 11 at Baldonnel). As these are the preferred directions for circuits to both runways, an agreement exists between Weston ATS and Baldonnel ATS for same.
These circuits are based on the premise that Weston aircraft will remain North of the railway line at all times. At all other times at Weston, circuits off runway 25 shall be right-hand and circuits off runway 07 shall be left-hand. Due to the nature of Baldonnel operations, pilots engaged in circuits at Weston should be prepared for changes to the circuit direction at short notice from Weston ATS.
Runway 25 Left Circuit
After take-off and established in a positive climb, a gentle RIGHT turn to over fly the reservoir climbing to 1000ft QNH.
Avoid any helicopter activity in the Heli-Training Area beside the VOR on your right.
On reaching 1000ft QNH, turn left onto the crosswind leg and continue the turn onto the downwind leg making sure you are north of the railway line at all times. Turn left onto base when abeam the Spa Hotel remaining clear of Lucan village.
Establish finals no lower than 650ft QNH.
VFR Arrival Routes (Standard)
From the West: Call Weston ATS five miles or five minutes before the AOR boundary then, once cleared to do so, route North of Maynooth towards Leixlip at 1500ft QNH. When abeam the Intel industrial complex, make a right turn towards the airfield to arrive overhead at 1500ft QNH. Report overhead at 1500ft QNH and join the circuit pattern giving way to circuit traffic.
From the East: When handed over from Dublin ATS to Weston ATS, once cleared to do so, route along the N4 or River Liffey to arrive overhead the airfield at 1500ft. Report overhead at 1500ft QNH and join the circuit pattern giving way to circuit traffic.
