    Just to clarify, hangar based operators will pay outdoor rates when displaced, not full hangar fees. Sadly 50% on landings and T&G as well as an increase in parking both in and outdoors I think is probably what caused the exodus.
    .....Two of my friends left Weston because they were told that they would not be reimbursed or compensated if their aircraft were pushed
    outside, regardless. Now, adding to having their aircraft pushed out into the very elements that they paid to avoid, is the risk of "hangar rash", so my friends voted with their feet. The attitude displayed to them was "like it or lump it", which is not fair or right treatment for good, paying customers.

    I see. The email that went around in March says: "If the aircraft is moved from the hangar to the apron, the apron rate will apply for that period."

    You're right though, I would fear for it with the way things are going.

    What's the plan for Weston to get up and running again?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,854 ✭✭✭zuutroy


    Have only heard rumours, but none of them are positive.

    Interesting thing I found online today...


    IRELAND KILCOCK NEW DUBLIN AREA AIRPORT - INITIAL FEASIBILITY STUDY AND AIRPORT MASTER PLAN
    Areas of Expertise: Airport Master Planning
    Country: Europe and North America: Ireland

    ​LEAPP was commissioned by a private sector firm of contractors to carry out a feasibility study for a new greenfield airport west of Dublin near Kilcock in County Meath, so that it could supplement Dublin International Airport for regional European jet aircraft services, as well as wide body passenger, charter and cargo operations.  LEAPP undertook a site investigation, carried out obstacle analysis and studied the feasibility of integrated instrument operations with those of Dublin International Airport.  Based on the traffic requirements established for the new airport, LEAPP determined the facility requirements, such as runway length and strength, passenger terminal size and cargo facilities, as well as all required support facilities for an operational regional international airport serving scheduled and charter traffic, low cost carriers, and general aviation corporate jet operations.  LEAPP prepared options for development of the airport and the ultimate airport master plan.  A preliminary costing of the first phase of airport development was also carried out.
