Covid-19 - the airfield, flying lessons and gift vouchers
February 26th, 2021
Strathaven Airfield is re-opening after being closed for the start of 2021, even though the Scottish government regulations permitted continued operations.
Our decision to re-open from Friday 26th February follows the announcement that the NHS alert level has been lowered from the top tier.
Be aware, though, that it is illegal to travel to the airfield at present unless you live in South Lanarkshire.
Flying lessons at Strathaven Airfield are still not possible due to the social distancing and travel restrictions. We anticipate a restart date in April.
For those with gift vouchers from Sportflight Scotland and Microlight Scotland: existing vouchers due to expire in 2020 are having their validity extended to the end of September next year. So they will be valid until 30th September 2021.
There is no need to contact us to get vouchers re-issued. We will know when you call to book.
New gift vouchers will be valid until the end of 2021.
Rest assured, the airfield and the flying school are financially sound and will still be here once this crisis is under control.
The ground and the buildings of the airfield are owned mortgage-free by Marta and Colin, as are the aircraft used by the flying school and our house. Nothing is leased, so we don't have to pay the bank or finance company every month - which is a blessing.
