    Spotting Info
    Head west on the A91 from the M90 and it's on the left in less than a mile. Be aware that you will be crossing the ends of an active runway. Pegasus Flight Training, the microlight flying club that operate the airfield, are very friendly with no problems with hangar access and photos but please obtain permission beforehand. XM412 Jet Provost (coded "41" on nose, "49" on tail") is stored here and is easily seen on the drive round the old airfield to the club. There is a viewing area up at the tower, separating the public from the hangars and the flight line. Don't visit when the T in the Park festival is on. If you need any petrol, head east into Milnathort on the A91 and the garage is on the left, much cheaper than the motorway stations.

    Spotting Info
    Heading north on the A9, leave at the first junction signposted to Blair Atholl B8079 and head that way. Once you've joined the B8079 heading north alongside the railway line, take the first right and follow the track between the houses. The hangar is on your right and you should be able to look the 3 residents. The runway is off to your left.


    Spotting Info
    Head south out of Grange towards Errol. Go over the level crossing and turn right at the T-junction. Over the river and the airfield is on left. The aircraft can be seen from the Inchture to Errol Road about half a mile to the east of Grange. XG882 Gannet can be seen by following the road towards Errol and looking back towards the farm buildings. You can ask the security guard to look at the Gannet and photograph it, they are usually very friendly. From standing by the Gannet and looking straight ahead, you can see an old low brick building on the other side of an acre, with the booms of XD403 Vampire marked as "XE897" sticking out. Buccaneer XN981 is stored in a shed - you'll have to ask to be shown this as you'll need to be taken to it. This will depend on who is available at the time, but if it's locked up, there are gaps to look through.

    Spotting Info
    Northeast of town on the A94. Friendly airfield, ask at flying club, or the tower next to the big hangar for access - you're often given a tour and you might need a hi-viz jacket. Then ask at the offices of the other hangars - maintenance hangars ask the engineers, they are friendly. ACS Hangar no problem on asking, have to sign in and out in the visitors book. Contact them in advance to ensure someone will be there to show you round. There are a lot of residents so it's well worth it. G-BCIE PA28 wreck is dumped around 100 yards beyond the main hangar and is marked in the Spotting in the UK download.

    Spotting Info
    Come off the M90 at J5 and head east on the B9097 that runs just south of Loch Leven. At the end, turn left onto the B920 and the airfield is on your left after about a mile. Signed Scottish Gliding Centre. Friendly, ask for access though the club requires that you contact them in advance to arrange your visit, and sometimes even then access has known to be denied. There are hangars by the car park and hangars across the runway which you won't be allowed into if the runway is active for landing. The food in the clubhouse also comes recommended and cheap so make sure you stop in. The RAF Cadet gliders operate from the north strip, you'll need to ask if it's ok to drive over to them as you'll need to drive around the end of one of the runways.

    Spotting Info
    Head north out of Auchterarder on B8062. After a couple of sharp bends, you will go over one bridge. Take the next left, just before Kinkell Bridge. Airfield is on the left. Should be signposted. Ask permission for access, usually ok. The first hangar, that is not used regularly used by aircraft anymore and is full with farmers tools, contains the fuselage of Magister R1914. You'll need to get on your knees to see it.
