This year... learn to fly!

The PPL (Private Pilot's Licence) and LAPL (Light Aircraft Pilot's Licence) courses are your 2 options if you are looking to learn to fly a fixed-wing aeroplane.  For the Gyrocopter there is the PPL(G).  The courses are tailored to you, so they start when you are ready and you book to fly when you are free! We suggest you come in, call or email to discuss your course structure as everyone is different.

Why choose us?

We're 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 £139 an hour we think it's very competitive.

Quiet International Airport with 4 runways
We rarely have to stop flying because of crosswinds and you learn how to fly with the big jets and full international air traffic control.

Scenery and open airspace
With amazing mountains and glens and open airspace that allows us to fly wherever we want at whatever speed and height!

Full time flight instruction staff
Giving consistency of training allowing you to stay with the same instructor throughout your course.

EASA PPL Targeted Ground School
We've worked very hard to make sure our highly acclaimed groundschool is up to date and all the help you need to get through the theoretical examinations.

In-house Maintenance
All our aircraft are maintained by our qualified Engineers through our CAA accredited  Continuing AIrworthiness Management Organisationn (CAMO).

ELCAS accredited
Highland Aviation can now provide Enhanced Learning credits to all MOD staff leaving the services.
