I booked a gift voucher to give to my husband as a wedding gift - and he was grinning like a kid at Christmas throughout the whole experience. We did the 2 hour flight in a 4 seater plane and it was just amazing. Nothing beats seeing the beauty of Scotland from the air. Highly recommended.

My husband had booked a 1 hour flying experience beforehand and was very much looking forward to it (to my demise). Naturally, I was shocked and very anxious when I heard that he had booked it but seeing as he was quite excited and had actually wanted to become a pilot earlier, I went on with it. After checking in... More

My Fiancée and I decided to book a trial flight (last minute I might add) while staying near Inverness. This experience was by far the memorable part of our vacation. The staff was extremely polite and the instructor was excellent! We had hoped to travel farther west during our flight but unfortunately the weather changed quickly, which is typical for... More

Hi, thanks for your feedback. Our legendary Scottish weather keeps us on our toes but can make for some fantastic views, looking through a shower to sun behind with triple rainbows over Loch ness. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your flight, hope to see you again. More

Bought the 30 minute, 4 person flight for my daughter's 19th birthday. She thought it was an awesome gift and enjoyed every minute of it. A bonus was that we got to fly over our house. Highly recommended - we would love to do it again.

We were on a cruise with a day in Invergordon and I was looking for something which our 17 year old son would enjoy, after 10 days of sightseeing! He has almost completed his Private Pilot's Licence and, as we live on an island, all of his training hours have been spent flying between the Channel Islands and France. I... More

Having had tuition from different staff at Highland Aviation, I can absolutely recommend them for both pleasure flights and flight training. Only one warning - If you take even a half hour lesson, you'll want more-more-more!
