Castle Kennedy Airfield

Centred between Northern Ireland, Prestwick, Carlisle, Blackpool, and Isle of Man, this is the only facility for General Aviation in the South West of Scotland.

All General Aviation aircraft are welcome, under guidance of the rules of the airfield.

The airfield is unlicensed, strictly PPR, and available for use at the pilots own risk and discretion.

Castle Kennedy is the location of the first recorded fixed wing flight arrival in Galloway in 1913, and has had a varied history which can be researched further on the airfield's own website.

At present the airfield has one active hard runway. However there are plans to develop both a second hard runway, and a grass strip.

Hangar space has recently become available for multiple aircraft.

The airfield is strictly PPR, and visitors are requested to complete a registration form, or contact by telephone, details on the website. Please also check with the official site for other activities in the vicinity of the airfield. All operations at Castle Kennedy are at the pilot's discretion.

There is no radio facility at Castle Kennedy, and safetycom should be used under normal circumstances.

    28 Sep 20 - Stephen Nuttall - 0.5 NM North of Inskip VRP - Fly from Blackpool

    Quick update: Gardens now open Wednesday to Sunday, cafe open with slightly limited menu, (but still very good), Covid restrictions not too onerous in a large open area. Airfield as good as ever, but a few more weeds in parking area. Still only £10, and a 20 minute walk to the gardens.

     

    Lovely flight from Blackpool with all danger areas closed on a Sunday (27 September), Scottish Info busy but as helpful and friendly as always. Definitely one of our greyhounds’ favourite destinations. (And mine too of course.....!)
