A man accused of causing a false alarm at Dublin Airport by flying a drone into a critical part of area of the airport has appeared in court.
There was no objection to him getting bail.
Ainis Guzauskas, aged 41, a father-of-two with an address at Ridgewood Close in Swords, was brought before a late sitting of Dublin District Court.
He's accused of knowingly causing a false alarm at Dublin Airport on the 2nd of July last year by allegedly flying a drone into a critical area of the airport, which is said to have interfered with the operation of an aerodrome.
Judge John Hughes was told the accused made no reply after the charge was put to him this afternoon and there was no Garda objection to him getting bail.
Bail was granted subject to a number of conditions, including that he not use, own or fly a drone, or take part in any way with the operation of one.
He was also ordered to stay at least 2km away from Dublin Airport.
He’s due back in court on the 21st of next month.
