What Can I Expect

Fly in a light sports aircraft from Perth! Scotland's biggest General Aviation airport at Scone in the heart of the highlands is your departure point for these fantastic flights, so stunning scenery is a given!

We are offering vouchers for 30, 40 and 60-minute flights in a brilliant little Eurostar plane. They are super lightweight, fixed-wing, closed-cockpit, light sports aircraft and they are great fun to fly in.

The Evektor Aerotechnik (EV97) Eurostar hails from the Czech Republic. The aircraft is really popular in sports aviation circles around the world, as they are economical to run and a delight to fly. That's why the team at Perth chose the Eurostar, as it makes flying accessible and affordable.

As a family-run business, a friendly welcome is assured and this Perth team loves to share the passion for light sports aviation by offering these taster experiences. During your flight, there will be time for you to take the controls (if you fancy it) and have a go at flying the Eurostar yourself.

And of course, with the airport being located just a few miles from Perth between Scone and Kinrossie, you've got some lovely things to see whilst you're up there cruising at 2000ft. Depending on your flight path, you might see the likes of Scone Palace, Glamis Castle and the winding River Tay.

Ever since flying started in 1936 at Scone Aerodrome, as it was then known, flying has become very much part of the history of the Perth area. If you want to have a go at flying a light sports aircraft in Scotland, these taster lessons in a two-seater Eurostar out of Perth Airport are ideal! Buy your vouchers online now.
