Ruskey airfield remains CLOSED to ALL aircraft movements due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Do not land nor visit the airstrip until further notice. By order: 24th October 2020
Ruskey Airfield is set in a rural area in North West Ireland. We are situated 1 mile south of the village of Convoy and 7 mile south of the provincial town of Letterkenny. Ruskey airfield is set in un-controlled class G airspace and the majority of the surrounding area is un-obstructed class G also. The airfield is strictly PPR by telephone please.
Visitors from northern Ireland or the UK need to file a flight plan & Irish general aviation report form if visiting us. We are a none designated airfield & a flight plan is mandatory to cross the FIR boundary into southern Ireland. This is no big issue and we can advise you on what is required & all required forms are available from the side menu. Donegal is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and provides some of the most spectacular scenery in the whole country. Many visiting pilots remark that it is one of the most beautiful areas to fly in.
If you view the "Airfield Information" tab you can find the co-ordinates for the airfield, the runway dimensions, runway orientation, and the circuit pattern we advise everyone to use. The A/G radio frequency (not always manned) is also listed there.
