 “About Us


For many years now we have collected a vast amount of information related to aviation

sites in Ireland. In 1999 we first started noting the information on index cards, then

in 2001 transferred all the data we had at that time onto our computer.

While flight guides have over the years covered some airstrips/airfields/airports etc,

we realized there was not a definitive listing available of the many aviation related

locations in the country.

So we decided to have a go at compiling one and here are the ongoing results. Many of

the sites have very little known about them, while many more are presently unknown to

us. If you can add to or correct any of the information on the list, we would be

delighted to hear from you.

Text data related to each site is included in a second file named “NotesLogsLists”. We
are presently editing personal information from the file. When this is complete, it
will be uploaded to the website.

Private data is available on request, but will only be provided at the discretion of

Admin and when we are completely satisfied it is required for a genuine reason.

The “Aviation Sites in Ireland” database, is intended as the foundation of an on-going

historic listing of all aviation sites in Ireland. The list will cover the period from

the first recorded balloon flights in Ireland during the mid 1780's, up to the current

time. We wish to include all sites used for aviation purposes of any description. Also,

it is our intention that the complete database should be available for reference and



Almost every site listed, including some mountains, is on private property and in a lot

of cases the owners home. Inclusion of a site in this database, DOES NOT GRANT RIGHT OF

ACCESS. If you wish to gain access to any site, you must first request permission from

the owner or the operator. If their answer is NO, PLEASE respect their decision.


You may pass on information contained in the database to individuals. But we would ask

you not to PUBLISH any of the details or photos, we also ask you to pass on this request

to everyone receiving info or photos from the database. Plus, would anyone wishing to

PUBLISH any of the database content PLEASE use "Contact Us" on the home page in order to

ask admins advice first.

Most photographs are donated freely for inclusion. In some cases the name of the person

who supplied the photo is also included. It is good manners to ask permission if you

wish to copy any photos. If the photo is shown as supplied by a named person or by a

“guest” please get in touch with admin using the “contact us” link in order to request

permission to take a copy. We do realize that some people just grab and use as they see

fit, but as already stated it is good manners to ask! Generally the majority of photo

donors will allow downloads for personal use.

However ONLY photos ADDED by Hugo can be copied and used in any way, providing credit for

the photos is given to Hugo Wilhare.
