Strathaven Airfield

Strathaven Airfield is a small traditional grass airfield located just outside of Strathaven in Lanarkshire, Scotland.

The airfield is one of the oldest civilian airfields in Scotland and was founded in the early 1950's by Group Captain George Pinkerton, the first man to shoot down a German aircraft over British soil in World War 2.

The site features three grass runways, the longest of which is 530 metres and has seen varied use over the years, currently used mainly by microlight aircraft. Flight training on three-axis aircraft is available with SportFlight Scotland and for weightshift aircraft is available through Microlight Scotland.

The building of the house on the airfield belonging to airfield owner, Colin MacKinnon, was recently documented on the UK Channel 4 television programme "Grand Designs".
