 MARINE NOTICE, No. 73 of 2018

Athlone

Dangers of Drone Activity in the Vicinity of

Athlone Town and Custume Barracks

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise all vessel owners and operators on the dangers of using drones around Athlone Town and especially in the vicinity of Custume Barracks, Athlone.
The National Aeromedical Emergency Helicopter operates out of Custume Barracks, Athlone and can launch at short notice.
The possibility of a drone coming into contact with the National Emergency Aeromedical ambulance helicopter based in Custume Barracks, Athlone, is ever present.
Under Statutory Instruments (S.I.) No. 563 of 2015, drone use is not permitted in the vicinity of other aircraft, over urban areas or within 30 metres of any person, vessel, vehicle or structure not under your direct control. As such drones should not be flown within 2km of Athlone Marina.
Outside this exclusion zone, Waterways Ireland wishes to advise all Drone users engaged in flying of the inherent dangers attached to this activity in locations where the aeromedical helicopter or other aircraft are active.
A drone in the air will always remain a very small target to see for the crew of the aircraft particularly if:

  • The weather is inclement
  • There is a high workload placed on the aeromedical crew
  • There is difficulty in sighting due to slanting sunshine in early morning or late evening
  • Visibility is poor due to fog, mist or rain

Drone users should risk assess their location prior to launching their drone, for aircraft traffic, suitability of their location for drone use, weather and water conditions.
The absence of drone use in the above areas will always give enhanced safety and security to the crew and patients of the aeromedical service.

Waterways Ireland thanks all vessel owners and operators for their co-operation in relation to this matter.

Gefahren durch Dronen in der Umgebung von Athlone Town und der in der Nähe der Custume Kaserne von Athlone

Waterways Ireland möchte alle Schiffseigner und -betreiber über die Gefahren des Einsatzes von Drohnen in der Umgebung von Athlone Town und insbesondere in der Nähe der „Costume“ Baraken Athlone, informieren. Der National Aeromedical Emergency Helicopter operiert aus der Kaserne in Athlone und kann kurzfristig starten. Die Möglichkeit, dass eine Drohne mit dem in der Kaserne von Athlone, stationierten Rettungshubschrauber in Kontakt kommt, ist immer gegeben.
Nach den gesetzlichen Vorschriften (S.I.) Nr. 563 von 2015 ist der Einsatz von Drohnen in der Nähe anderer Flugzeuge, über städtischen Gebieten oder innerhalb von 30 Metern von Personen, Schiffen, Fahrzeugen oder Strukturen, die nicht unter Ihrer direkten Kontrolle stehen, nicht gestattet. Daher sollten Drohnen nicht innerhalb von 2 km von Athlone Marina geflogen werden.
Außerhalb dieser Sperrzone möchte Waterways Ireland alle am Fliegen beteiligten Drohnenbenutzer auf die mit dieser Tätigkeit verbundenen Gefahren an Orten hinweisen, an denen der flugmedizinische Hubschrauber oder andere Flugzeuge aktiv sind.
Eine Drohne in der Luft wird immer ein sehr kleines Ziel bleiben, das für die Besatzung des Flugzeugs besonders dann zu sehen ist:

  • Das Wetter ist schlecht.
  • Die flugmedizinische Besatzung ist stark ausgelastet.
  • Es gibt Schwierigkeiten bei der Sichtung aufgrund der schrägen Sonneneinstrahlung am frühen Morgen oder späten Abend.
  • schlechte Sicht durch Nebel, Nebel oder Regen

Drohnenbenutzer sollten ihren Standort vor dem Start ihrer Drohne, für den Flugverkehr, die Eignung ihres Standorts für den Einsatz der Drohne, das Wetter und die Wasserverhältnisse bewerten.
Das Fehlen von Drohnen in den oben genannten Bereichen wird der Besatzung und den Patienten des flugmedizinischen Dienstes immer mehr Sicherheit bieten.
