|This year... learn to fly!
The Light Aircraft Pilot's Licence (LAPL) and the Private Pilot's Licence (PPL) courses are the two options for aspiring fixed-wing pilots. For the Gyrocopter, we also offer the PPL(G).
The courses are tailored to you, so they start when you are ready and you book to fly when you are available.

Why choose us?
Authorised by the CAA
We are the only CAA Approved Training Organisation (ATO) in the north of Scotland. This means we provide the very highest standards and can teach and examine the LAPL & PPL courses, as well as a number of additional ratings.
No Landing Fees
All flight costs are included, and from £189 an hour we think it's very competitive.
Proximity to Training Area
Most of our flying takes place over the Black Isle, which is only a two minute flight from the airport. This means there are no long transits to and from our training area at the student's expense.
Our Local Training Area is situated within uncontrolled airspace, offering us the maximum operating freedom, whilst still under the watchful eye of Inverness Radar.
Busy Airfield Environment
Whilst surrounded by quiet uncontrolled airspace, the airfield environment itself is often busy with commercial traffic. This provides an excellent, albeit sometimes challenging, learning environment for our students.
Our LAPL and PPL instructors are full time and we aim to keep each student with just the one instructor throughout the course.
All our aircraft are maintained by our qualified engineers through our CAA accredited Continuing AIrworthiness Management Organisationn (CAMO).
Highland Aviation can now provide Enhanced Learning credits to all MOD staff leaving the services.
