Our Charities and Community Involvement
Civil Air Support
The purpose of the Civil Air Support (previously known as Sky Watch Civil Air Patrol) 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.
Edinburgh UAS, Winkle Brown Memorial Fund
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.
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.
It was with delight we flew the very deserving children that care for parents and family members, in cooperation with Connecting Young Carers.
It was a real treat to spend time with them, and we have a great deal of admiration of them.
Highland Aviation have been delighted to welcome various Scout groups to tour our facilities over the past few years and to work towards badge requirements. For more information see our dedicated Scout page here
Highland Aviation Football Club
We are proud to sponsor our local amateur football team who proudly wear our colours. One of our previous 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
The 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.
