Belfast Tall Ships - Airspace Restrictions


All users of Newtownards airfield should be aware the Red Arrows will be overflying Belfast (1000) before displaying at Carrickfergus (1005-1030) this Sunday as part of the Belfast Tall Ships festival.

Belfast City Airport will be suspending all movements for the duration of the display. This means the airport and ATC are likely to be very busy in the periods before and more especially after the display. Notably the latter part of Sunday morning will be significantly busier than it has been in recent years.

It is therefore highly unlikely that ATC will be able to accommodate any Belfast City Control Zone transits until after 1200z. With this in mind the club has agreed to give Belfast City ATC a wide berth during this period and members are strongly encouraged to abide by this agreement.

Congratulations to Martin Leslie

Congratulations to club member Dr Martin Leslie on passing his Skills Test today ( 30/May/2015) after 26 hours training in 8 months on Thruster G CGFZ. Martin has joined the G CBXG group at Newtownards.
