Cork Airport launches drone awareness campaign
No Reproduction Fee

Tuesday, 26th July 2016: 
Cork Airport has launched an awareness campaign aimed at drone users. The number of incidents involving drones and aircraft on approach or departure from aerodromes across Europe has increased in recent years. In response to these, the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) introduced regulations in 2015.
 
Cork Airport is now taking a leading role with a proactive approach to promoting drone usage awareness with this new campaign. 
 
In conjunction with the IAA, the body responsible Safety Regulation and Air Traffic Control, Cork Airport is placing signage around the airport perimeter at various approach locations to runways. The “No Drone Zone” signage was designed by the airport and the IAA.

Pictured at the launch were from left, Nathan Wall, Airside Safety Lead, Cork Airport, Cathal MacCriostail, IAA Manager Airspace and Navigation, Ciaran Carton, General Operations Manager at Cork Airport and licensed drone operator Raymond Fogarty, AirCam Ireland.
