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.

Bought a voucher for our son's 16th birthday...unfortunately weather defeated us on the first attempt but everyone was very helpful and we rebooked for the end of the week. He had a blast! Thanks to everyone.....I think we'll be back 😊

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

I bought a 45 minute flight experience in a 4 seat plane for my partner. I went in the back. James our pilot explained everything to us before we took off. He then planned the best route for us as it was really quite hazy. My partner got to fly the plane for a wee while which made me quite... More

I booked the four seat plane for a 1 hour flying experience for my partners birthday and he got to fly the plane which he said was amazing. As a passenger it was also incredible. The pilot was very friendly and informative and we flew over the city, Loch Ness and the the Black Isle. It is a stunning way... 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! There's a nice little shop in their hangar at Inverness Airport where you can purchase everything from map reading tools to keyrings and good... More

This was a gift I received from work and at first wasn't keen to go however once we found the place the whole experience was brilliant - wonderful helpful staff who calmed my nerves and made the whole experience magical - I have since bought my father a gift voucher for Father's Day.

After a pleasant welcome I met David my instructor for the flight. I had already taken a flight a few years ago along Loch Ness in the same type of plane , a Piper Tomahawk. David asked me how much flying I wanted to do. I suggested as much as possible except for his take-off and landing. After take-off he... More

I bought a 1 hour flight with pictures and certificate for my wife as a surprise anniversary present. The experience was recommended to me by a friend who had been previously. It's not something either of us had tried before and I thought it would be fun. Although I hate heights with a passion, I genuinely couldn't have asked for... More
