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.

Uncontrolled Airspace
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.

Full-Time Instructors
Our LAPL and PPL instructors are full time and we aim to keep each student with just the one instructor throughout the course.

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.
