The Scottish Aero Club will be delighted to welcome our readers at the following event:
The Scottish Aero Club is holding a fly-in at Perth Airport (EGPT) on 7 and 8 May for members of the Light Aircraft Association, the British Microlight Association, the British Rotorcraft Association and aero clubs from around the UK, Ireland and Europe.
It is planned that this will be the major event for the LAA north of the Border this year and the Scottish Aero Club is hoping to attract large numbers of aircraft, including groups of Europas, Vans, Pioneers etc., and a variety of vintage types.
The Airport operator, ACS Aviation, has offered half price landing fees for visiting aircraft and the Airport owner, the Morris Leslie Group, is providing an area for camping. The Skylodge Hotel, situated on the Airfield (01738 555700) has rooms available ranging from £25.95 single and £47.50 double (including continental breakfast). Pilots and passengers will also be able to use the facilities at the Scottish Aero Club.
The Club will be organising a barbeque on the evening of 7 May and other attractions are being planned. There will be prizes for the greatest distance flown and the most meritorious flight.
Perth (Scone) is ideally placed for touring Scotland with some amazing mountain scenery on its doorstep. It is also close to the city of Perth and the famous Scone Palace.

UPDATE: The Airport Operator has now offered free landing fees for aircraft uplifting 30 litres or more of fuel.
