I would like to first take this opportunity to say thank you for stopping by and checking out the thread and welcome you to my first event. As a member of Ryanair VA it has made me realise how many different places and cultures Ryanair fly to and from and gave me the idea to set up this wonderful flyout where you can join me and fly to one of Ryanair’s popular destinations!
With one of Ryanair’s main hubs being Dublin airport I decided to choose this airport as our departure airport. Ryanair currently (pre-pandemic) fly to 113 destinations from Dublin to Europe, Middle East and even North Africa. With all these routes to choose from I had no choice but to choose the beautiful city and home of Ryanair, Dublin to host this event from.
For the route list I have chose some of the best destinations across Europe and the Canary Islands. I hope you will join us as we turn Dublin airport blue and white and take to the skies in our 737-800s!! If you are interested in signing up for this fantastic event please make sure to reply to this thread or message the event organiser @Nick_Martin on IFC.

Along with the gate allocation list we will also be giving out an allocated pushback time. It is extremely important that you spawn at your allocated gate and pushback at your slot time. The reason for a pushback slot time being given is to avoid everyone pushing back at once and causing ramp congestion.
If ATC are present at the airport during the event then slot times can be ignored and pushbacks can be requested at 1500z and will be authorised at ATC discretion.
Please see below the gate allocation list:
All gate reservations will be on PIER 4 of Dublin Airport (EIDW)
It is recommended that you spawn at your gate 30 minutes before your pushback time to give you chance to prepare your flight plan and aircraft for departure.
At Dublin airport, the main runway that is used is runway 28L/10R. For the event we will use this runway for the departures. Depending on winds/weather it will be confirmed which side of the runway we will depart from 2 hours prior to the event (1300z).
There will be no specific departure route that we will be asking pilots to use out of Dublin. All we ask is that pilots carefully plan their route to their destination using a flight planner such as Simbrief and they follow their flight plan. As well as this we ask pilots to leave a 2 minute space between departures to ensure a safe distance is kept between departing aircraft.
Once in the Sky
