Written answers (Question to Minister for Defence)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 22 and 29 together.

It has been the practice to permit occasional use of Casement Aerodrome by privately owned aircraft on an "ad hoc" basis on the payment of a fee and production of the necessary insurance indemnity.

Requests for permission to land privately owned aircraft, including helicopters, at Casement Aerodrome, Baldonnel, are occasionally received by my Department. Such requests, are dealt with on a case-by-case basis and permission may be granted, subject to operational, security, administrative etc. considerations. A fee of €222.20 is payable in respect of each occasion of use. Permission was granted for twenty six (26) such landings since January, 2006.
