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.
The nights will start drawing out again in a few weeks. Time to start thinking about flying plans for next year! The dates for our popular Easter fly ins are :
Easter@Easter - 11/12 April 2020 - CANCELLED
Following on from the advice issued by the government around public gatherings, we have decided to cancel our planned fly in, which was scheduled to take place on 11th / 12th April 2020.
It is disappointing that it has been necessary to cancel the fly-in weekend due to the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We shall be monitoring the situation in the weeks and months ahead and we look forward to our Summer Solstice event scheduled for 20th and 21st June. Hopefully the World will be in a better place then and we can get back to enjoying social flying again.
What with the wet start to 2020 and the health crisis, it hasn’t been the best start to 2020 at Easter. We hope for better times ahead and best of luck to those Highland businesses and individuals who are directly impacted by this nasty situation.
All the best.
Summer Solstice and longest day fly in - 20/21 June 2020

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.
