The CAA have announced that all flight training will resume in England on 4th July 2020. We anticipate Scotland, and therefore Highland Aviation will follow suit soon after. We will make an announcement when we have a firm date. All gift vouchers have been extended in line with our closure period and we look forward to welcoming you soon. Our online shop will remain open throughout the closure period.

Our Charities and Community Involvement

Charities

 

UK Civil Air Patrol - Scotland

Civil Air Patrol Scotland 

The purpose of the UK Civil Air Patrol (legacy name Sky Watch) is to provide occasional airborne assistance to first responders, organisations, agencies, groups or individuals who would otherwise not have access to such a facility or who may need to temporarily extend the reach of their own established air support. 

 

 SCRAPbook Project Highland Aviation Gyrocopter
All full-time Instructors at Highland Aviation are registered to carry out flights on behalf of the charity, and our entire aircraft fleet are at their disposal at a time of need.
We have carried out a number of flights including missing person's searches, and aerial survey of Scottish Coastline as part of The SCRAPbook Project (Scottish Coastal Rubbish Aerial Photography)
Throughout the COVID-19 epidemic our staff have been on standby to volunteer to transport urgent medical supplies around the Highlands & Islands. 
Please note that any and all work of this nature must be arranged through the charity.

 

Edinburgh UAS, Winkle Brown Memorial Fund

Edinburgh UAS 

Through the Edinburgh University Air Squadron funds are raised to provide WINKLE FLYING SCHOLARSHIPS enabling some of today's youngsters, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, to experience the life-enhancing benefits of flying at the controls of light aircraft.

Highland Aviation supports the Winkle Brown Memorial Fund and has conducted a number of these flights with deserving young people.

 

High Life Highland

The image below shows the collective joy of 15 young people from the High Life Highland Leadership Programme that were enabled to take a flight around the Inverness area. In collaboration with Inverness Airport they were also given a tour of the airport facilities, including the terminal, Air Traffic Control Tower and the Fire Station. 

 

High Life Highland

 

We continue this work in collaboration with several charitable groups looking to give the opportunity of flight to deserving young people.  However, should you have an enquiry, they must be directed to the charity in the first instance.

 

Highland Aviation Football Club

We are proud to sponsor our local amateur football team who proudly wear our colours.  One of our Aircraft Engineers, Giuseppe, is a top goal scorer for the team.  We look forward to seeing more newspaper reports of their fine performance.

LAA Highland and Islands Strut

LAAThe Highland and Islands Strut of the Light Aircraft Association are a friendly group of Pilots, Aircraft Engineers and Aviation Enthusiasts that meet regularly to discuss local aviation matters, catch up with the news and arrange fly-in's and get togethers.

The strut meet at the Highland Aviation offices on the last Friday on alternate months, and is open to anyone with an interest in aviation.  A number of members travel significant distances, including one member who regularly fly down from his own airfield in Orkney to attend meetings!

As Highland Aviation take an active interest in the Strut, we also attend the meetings.  It's a good opportunity to meet fellow aviating enthusiasts for a catch up, with refreshments provided.
