A wee bit about Easter Airfield...

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.

 

Enjoy some images below of flying and some other activities at our airfield.

 

We look forward to seeing you by air or road at Easter.
