IALPA/Fórsa has written to the government stating that the planned northern runway at Dublin will limit operations as it won't be long enough.
In a letter seen by the Sunday Independent, IALPA's safety and technical director, Captain John Goss, said the length of an airport runway limited its connectivity.Capt Goss said pilots calculated the maximum possible take-off weight before each flight, but planes departing Dublin for the Far East would not be able to take off at full capacity owing to the length of the new northern runway.
