Flying into Easter on 17th June 2018?
Weather permitting, we are expecting a large number of different types of aircraft to be flying into and around Easter Airfield on the weekend of 16th & 17th June 2018. These include Group A, Microlights and Aerobatic aircraft to name a few. They are of differing speeds and capabilities therefore separation and a good look out is paramount for your safety.
Easter runway numbers update - 19th April 2018
The runway at Easter is being enhanced with 06/24 number designators in concrete in preparation for the 2018 flying season. Concrete is planned for install on Monday 23rd. Many thanks to the Highland Aero Club for their donation to improve the facility at Easter.
James Hayward Memorial Fly In - 17th June 2018
24th December 2017
It is with great sadness that we record the unexpected passing of James Hayward. James was an integral part of the flying scene in the Highlands as an AME, Flying Instructor, Examiner and flying buddy. We have shared many fantastic flying events and experiences with him at Easter Airfield over the years. James will be sorely missed as a mentor for many, but mostly as a treasured friend. RIP.
