[Closed] - IFATC At Home - Dublin, Ireland



Hey everyone!

I hope everyone’s doing very well and healthy.


Let me introduce myself:
My name is Rian, I come from Ireland, and I live in The Netherlands. I love Aer Lingus of course. I’m part of many different VA’s, if you want some more about me, feel free to check out my profile. Anyways, I’m not here to talk a bout VA’s, IFATC At Home is back!!! Enjoy this thread guys:)


Anyways, let’s dive into the details.


Dublin Aiport EIDW

dublin-terminal-2

So, Dublin Airport:
First off, some general facts:

  • Opened on January 19th, 1940
  • Hub for Aer Lingus, with one of Ryanair’s primary cities.
  • Handled 32,907,673 passengers in 2019.

Now, onto the more important information.

Dublin Airport has two runways:

Runway 10/28

Length: 8,652 ft / 2,637m, asphalt surface

Runway 16/34

Length: 6,798ft / 2,072m, asphalt surface


IMPORTANT INFO
Runway 16/34 is rarely in use in real life, expect the rwy not to be in use

As you can see above, rwy 16/34 will probably not be used, unless the winds are very strong. I will notify you as we get closer to the date. If this is the case, the runway can be used as a taxiway.
When taking off from runway 28, you do not have to request a runway crossing if you are coming from the taxiways that are in the big red circle.
When taxiing to rwy 10, make sure to taxi via taxiway H1 and H2, as highlighted in this chart:

Hey Rian, Runway 16/34 is actually used it real life, it is used when the winds are quite strong and gusty coming from a southerly direction, however it is very rare to have arrivals onto 34. More times than not it will be 28/10. I’ll make sure to be there for around 10:30 tomorrow!
If you want to see some of the arrival and departure charts have a look at the EIDW AIP and look at the category C and D SIDs and STARS, http://iaip.iaa.ie/iaip/aip_eidw_charts.htm

Being from Kildare, I’ve made many trips to DUB for spotting, and it’s always been used as a taxiway while I’ve been there.

Yeah usually it’s used as a taxiway for 28 for the aircraft coming from Terminal 1 but when the wind is strong from the south it may be more favourable to use 16/34. I’ve seen Emirates and Etihad land their 777’s on 16!

Yeah I get you, but the winds today suit 28. Are you a Dub?

Yeah 10 is good for now, but if the wind was to veer around to 160/170/180/190 I’d be hoping 16 would be considered. No I’m from kildare!
