Easter Airfield is well known amongst the General Aviation community as being one of the friendliest and picturesque airfields in Scotland. This reputation makes us a popular destination for everyone, from pilots flying in, students learning to fly and members of the general public with an interest in Aviation.
Situated close to the Ross-shire town of Tain and only 30 minutes from Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, we are well placed for connections in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Pilots are advised that all operations require PPR (prior permission required) and movements at Easter Airfield are entirely at their own risk.
Please view our conditions of use and pilot information.

2021 Flying Season
DATES FOR YOUR DIARY
We were disappointed that our Easter@Easter fly in had to be cancelled this year, but we are full of anticipation for the mid-summer fly in on 19th and 20th June. If the weather is kind to us, we hope it will be one to remember, putting lockdowns behind us.
Why not make a weekend of it and stay in our Shepherds Hut? It is still available for that weekend, but unlikely to be for long as several enquiries have been forthcoming. First come, first served. See the 'Stay at Easter' page on this website.
Midsummer fly in - 19th and 20th June 2021 (Saturday and Sunday)
In the meantime, below is a short video featuring some of the aerial and some of the not so aerial sights and characters around Easter and the Highlands to keep you interested. Enjoy.
Look forward to seeing you at Easter!
A WEE BIT ABOUT US
Easter Airfield is an unlicensed airfield close to the town of Tain in Ross-shire. It has 2 runways, 06 and 24 and is privately owned by David Munro. The airfield is adjacent to the disused Fearn aerodrome, which used to be RAF Fearn and became HMS Owl in 1942. The nearest local village is Balintore which has a beach and local pub, community centre and convenience store.
We have a friendly set of aviators, with some aircraft resident in private hangars. There is also a small group of pilots who have positioned their aircraft at Easter, surprisingly called the 'Easter Flying Group' and operating a Piper Cherokee 180, G-AVSA.
The airfield continues to evolve and develop and recently added an extension to the runway to give the current 900 meters. In May 2018, the runways were upgraded with edge markers and concrete 06/24 runway designators.
We have several fly-ins and bbqs, mostly over the summer months which tend to be on an ad-hoc basis as the weather is quite changeable in the North.
We look forward to seeing you by air or road at Easter.
