Inverness Airfield (EGPE)

Submitted by: John MacNaught

A recommended and safer route for light aircraft travelling to and from Inverness Airport is to fly East avoiding the mighty Grampians.

Going over the mountains, whatever the weather, is not only risky but very uncomfortable (I was told!)

I flew from Dundee NNE to Banchory then Insch (VRP's for Aberdeen) this takes you on the edge of their ATZ and you will need to request zone transit from Aberdeen when flying through here. When overhead Insch turn West along the "Whisky Trail" via Rothes to Inverness.

I considered this a much better route over safer terrain and closer to populated areas with more suitable diversion options available. Flight Time approx 1.5 hours.

Inverness Airfield accepts genuine emergency and precautionary diversions without charge per CAA CAP 667 9.2 (c) recommendations.

    Should have posted this last year but forgot! Inverness is a pretty busy commercial airport but I found that they are equally geared up for GA too and I've flown from there three times now. I didn't have my own aircraft there but rented one from the flying school with an instructor to show me around the locality. The area is great for flying around the mountains and down the lochs. I did a Mountain Flying course with the flying school which was worth every penny - belting down the Great Glen at full power 200' above the water is something I'll never forget. I used the flying school for all services (other than ATC) and cannot find fault. The only downside is that the city is quite a distance away, so it proved better value to hire a car (many companies there) than use taxis.
