Kilkenny is at Level 2 which means that we are skydiving as scheduled in accordance with the best recommended practice and safety measures for living with Covid-19.
Dublin Members - Travel Outside of Dublin
The Government announced this evening (18/09/2020) that Dublin will be at Level 3 starting from midnight tonight. We understand that travel outside of Dublin is advisory and not mandatory. We recommend that our members who are travelling to Kilkenny from Dublin consider this advisory carefully.
Ultimately it is a matter for each of our Dublin based members to decide what to do. We have no control over the movement of our Dublin members. We will not turn our Dublin members away from Kilkenny Airfield.
We require and encourage all of our members to adhere to the best recommend practice for living with Covid-19.
