The Scottish Aero Club


Scotland's Oldest and Largest Aero Club

Flying in the Heart of Scotland

The Scottish Aero Club is a vibrant and active club based at Perth Airport and is Scotland’s original and largest flying club.
The amalgamation of The Scottish Flying Club, founded in 1927, which was based in Renfrew and The Strathtay Aero Club, founded in 1936, which was based at Perth, the two clubs merged in 1956 to form The Scottish Aero Club. Over the years, the Club has gone from strength to strength. 
Perth Airport is centrally located between Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow and has three runways; two tarmac and one grass. Consequently, there are very few times when wind direction prevents flying. The airport also features an operational tower, modern clubrooms, an onsite lodge and a cafe.
The location of the airport means it is the perfect location for flying around and exploring Scotland – one of the most spectacular countries in the world to fly!

Happy Flying!
